Maid in Chi-nah

Step on foreign soil, the harsh reality is that life of the garment worker is hard.

Damn the industry, cry the worker’s rights advocates.

Lead them out of poverty, shout the consumers.

But what do the people want? Work, and the right to a decent life.

Developing countries want business. You want it cheap; the cheaper the better.

“Globalization is good-Globalization is bad.”

How do you make better choices? How do you sort through the acronyms? DWCFC, what does that mean to me? MFA, I don’t know what to say. Is NGO or ILO the way to go?
