Day 239

GARMENT WORKERS leaving factory in Mirpur, Dhaka, Bangladesh.  In Dhaka there are at least 40,000 factories, hiring 2 million workers of which 80-90% are women.   A 13 yr. old worker locks herself in the bathroom or goes on the rooftop when the Child Labor inspectors come because she doesn’t want to lose her job.  She is the main supporter of her family at $32 per month.  They now only like to hire the tall young girls because they look earlier.  So, the short young girls can’t find jobs to help support their families.

The Days Work is Done!
