News Summary: Many Bangladeshi garment workers live hand-to-mouth from low wages

BURNING ISSUES: Since a November factory fire that killed 112 people and the April collapse of a factory that killed 1,129 people, Bangladesh's garment industry has been under increased pressure from workers and activists to raise wages and improve working conditions.
