File PDF document False Promises: Migrant Workers in the Global Garment Industry
by Paul Roeland last modified 13-01-2016 14:33 — filed under:
Migrant workers are becoming an increasingly important part of the workforce within the global garment industry. These workers are in a particularly vulnerable position in terms of workplace exploitation – in addition to low pay and long working hours, they often experience debt bondage, threats of violence and deportation - and they face specific barriers to voicing and demanding their rights as workers. This CCC Discussion Paper from 2009 shares research that will help raise awareness of the experiences of migrant workers in the garment industry and provides an input to ongoing discussions on how the CCC network and others can move forward to support respect for migrant workers’ rights.
