Global week of solidarity with Bangladeshi garment workers
On this edition of Your Call, we’ll discuss the weeklong solidarity campaign with garment workers in Bangladesh.
They’re demanding safe factories, freedom of association, and fair wages. Bangladesh is the world’s second largest garment exporter, but the four million workers, who are the backbone of the global apparel industry, are among the worst-paid in the world. How are workers in Bangladesh organizing for fair wages and better working conditions?
