@Guardian frontpage article today implies that sourcing clothes from Bangladeshi factories is morally wrong. theguardian.com/world/2019/jan…. This is a deeply problematic. These factories give income to millions of poor people. I worked for years with these factories. Long THREAD 1/37
Background: Bangladesh is second largest garment exporter in the world, after China. Ca. 4000 factories produce for export, with 4M workers, ca. 3M female. Factories vary from damp poorly lit shacks with few dozen workers to vast modern complexes with 10,000s workers. 2/37
Every major clothing brand in the world sources garments there, from exactly the kind of factories described in the article. If you are outraged over the Spice Girls from this article, you need to be outraged over EVERY large Western cloth retailer. But should you? 3/37
