it is well known that, life of a garment worker is very miserable. so, here i will discuss about miserable life of a garment worker and what steps should be taken to improve their life standard. these are described below briefly. i try to clarify these by my practical experience and information from journals and blogs.
in our country this factor is highly denied. many industries allow child labor as well as expired labor.
although, present situation is moderately good. a scenario from "bangladesh" human rights network is mentioned here.
a garments worker has to reach to garments very early morning. he works there long 12 hours from 8 am to 10 pm. sometimes she has to work up to midnight and he also does not get any vehicle at that time for returning home. she does not get extra holiday except friday and special occasions like eid. if he does not go to work for any emergency personal work, then he does not get money for those days. as a result their life becomes bored.
a garment worker earns very small amount of money like tk. 4000 to tk. 5000 only. within this money she has to lead their life. she has to manage all the things within the small amount of his fee including feeding his family members, giving house rent, transport cost, cost of clothes etc.
socially garments workers are neglected. they are considered as a lower class people in our society. especially female worker are hazarded by their co-workers and by eve-teaser. now-a-days peoples are not happy about their profession.
