Most of the world’s gamin is produced in low wages countries like Bangladesh. Workers rights, child labour and health issues related to work has become a international topic over the years and many legal improvements has been put in place after not only critical costumers, unions and many international organizations has laid a severe pressure on the factory owners and law makers. Much has been achieved, but focus may not fate. The control and implementation is strong on the factories that exports to the rich part of the world, but there is still a huge marked where only the price is an issue.
I believe that telling the stories, showing the pictures helps us keeping focus and leads to changes in our behaviour over time.
