Bangladesh garment workers pay settlement due

Garments workers in Bangladesh are due to find out if they have been finally granted a pay rise.

The government is to announce a new minimum wage for the workers, who the unions say are among lowest paid in the world.

The decision will be closely watched by fashion buyers the world over as the country's cheap labour comes under increasing scrutiny.
