Summary: 
After days of labour unrest that forced the closure of hundreds of factories in Bangladesh, the garment manufacturers have agreed to a US$73 minimum monthly wage for the country's four million garment workers. The agreement was reached after garment manufacturers met the Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on 13 November when she ordered them to implement the new wages recommended by the government's Minimum Wage Board panel. The panel voted to raise the minimum salaries to 5,300 taka (US$73) from 3,000 taka this month following a series of disasters in garment factories that highlighted terrible labour conditions and poor wages in thousands of units, many of which make clothing for the world's top retailers.
