Garments Workers

By Jannatul Ferdoush

Bangladesh is a small and poor country. It is an over populated country too. There are many people who live in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. Dhaka is a very crowded city. Most of the people of Bangladesh live in villages. Many people come to the cities to do a good job to earn money. Most of them work in garments factories. All aged people can work in the garments. They had no choice to do another work to earn money.

Garments workers’ life is very difficult. They wake up in every early morning. At first they are to finish their all household works. After that they go out to attend their work. They walked a long way to attend their work. Women workers face many problems. They are to maintain both their family and professional life at a time.

Garments workers’ life is very simple. These workers are lower class people. Most of garments workers live in slums. They work in garments for a long time. Most of the times they do over time work. But they can’t get their legal salary.

Bangladesh earns million dollars from foreign countries for these garment workers. But workers didn’t get the real respect like other people. We should respect them. These workers are the most important part of our country.

I am afraid the life of garment workers is NOT "very simple." Their survival strategies, their day to day coping mechanisms, their need to juggle a multitude of financial pressures makes for anything but a simple life.

I also believe that you should not use condescending phrase like "lower class" to describe garment workers. This does not sit well with your call for "respect." They are human beings. They are workers. And they deserve the rights due to them.
