Erin Burnett talks about a sex scandal involving former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi and his "bunga bunga" parties.
A riot breaks out after a right-wing group opened a soup kitchen that will only serve people with citizenship. Erin Burnett reports.
It's the first day of May also known as May Day! When people around the world hold parades and parties, unlike holidays like Christmas New Year's.
Different people celebrate May Day in very, very different ways.
Erin Burnett is OutFront with a few examples from around the world.
Rescue workers have called off a search for survivors in Bangladesh. Last week the eight-story Rana Plaza complex collapsed trapping thousands and killing hundreds of garment workers.
Most of them young, impoverished women. And it could have been avoided.
Officials say the complex was built on spongy ground without the correct permits and the building's owners ignored cracks.
The government in Bangladesh have vowed to investigate conditions at the factories. And retailers that use the facilities – like Wal-Mart and the Gap – have set aside money to improve safety.
Erin Burnett reminds us that we've heard that tune before.
Hundreds have been killed in similar disasters over the past decade. It has become increasingly obvious that the government and retailers can not and will not police themselves.
Bangladesh has about 4,500 garment factories, which account for 80% of the country's total exports.
In November, when we told you about a factory fire that killed 112 workers, we said it was time for stronger unions to protect the rights of the workers.
Now, with another 400 dead, Burnett says unions are more important than ever.
The rumors of the wristwatch's death was greatly exaggerated. Erin Burnett has the story in her essay.
