Rana Plaza two years on: Progress, but compensation and workers' rights still lacking

On 24 April 2013, Rana Plaza building collapse killed over 1100 garment workers and left 2000 injured.  The second anniversary has seen NGOs and investors urge companies to address a 6$m shortfall in compensation for victims.  Human Rights Watch has highlighted the harassment and intimidation of workers who form trade unions - it urges the government to enforce the labour law and protect workers' right to freedom of association.

What progress has been made since the disaster, and what still remains to be done?  Find out from a range of perspectives below.  For a good summary, see this article by Lydia DePillis in Washington Post.
