Behind The Thread - Episode 1
In our first episode of Behind The Thread, we talk to Rezwan Salim, owner of Softex Cotton, who is filing a lawsuit against the Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety and the Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh for allegedly shutting down his factory illegally. Plus, many garment factory owners say that their profits are being eaten away too quickly by rising wages and compliance costs and a refusal by brands to pay more for their orders. We talk with an executive of the Babylon Group, one of the largest garment factories in Bangaldesh. Also, meet Kate Seamark, a mother of six who is finding the time to push for better working conditions in garment factories around the world.
