Bangladesh is the world's second largest garment exporter thanks to rapid production and rock bottom...

One year after the worst disaster in the history of the garment industry, many of those affected by the Rana Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh say they're still waiting for compensation. Award winning journalist Jason Motlagh brings Day 6 the stories of three people — a survivor, a grieving mother and a rescuer — whose lives were changed dramatically as a result of the collapse at Rana Plaza.

Listen to the full interview on CBC Radio.
