Summary
Examines how the transnational economics of the apparel industry allow firms to relocate or subcontract their work anywhere in the world, making it harder for garment workerss in the United States or any other country to demand fair pay and humane working conditions. Shows not only how international trade affects local communities but also how workers can organize in this new environment to more effectively demand better treatment from their distant corporate employers.
