Behind The Thread - Episode 34
In this episode of Behind The Thread, we honor May Day by looking at the lives of workers and ways that ordinary citizens can become activated. Better Work Vietnam has released a study saying that happy, content workers are more productive. We talk to Dr. Arianna Rossi for more information. Also, Fairtrade International says it is developing a textile standard for the entire supply chain from farm to fashion. We'll talk with Elisabeth Bystrom, one of the leaders of the effort, to see how this standard will stand out from the rest. Also, Chamtouli Huq of Law at the Margins looks at how consumers can push their elected leaders to push for better working conditions both at home and around the world.
