The Branded Girls

Uploaded on Thursday 11 July 2013


In, Bangladesh, garment girls work in sweatshops producing clothing for the world's top brands at less than minimal wages. The garment workers join the garment factories lured by dreams of financial independence but now it is nothing less than slavery. They are made to work for more than 10 hours a day, seven days a week. Many women complain of harassment at the factories, both rude behavior and sexual assaults. In many cases women are attacked when they are returning home after night shifts. There is no insurance and no medical compensation. But the garment factories continue to lure hundreds of thousands of young girls and children each year.
