Thank you for reading these posts from our trip to Bangladesh, a research trip for “The Price Of Our Clothes,” our project about the ways in which American consumers are tied to the Triangle Shirtwaist fire and the garment workers in Bangladesh. We would love to include your input as we move forward.
So here are a few questions for you. Please know that your answers may be included in our project.
What kinds of questions were raised for you about garment workers in Bangladesh?
Did reading our blog make you think differently at all about the clothes you wear?
If you could speak to garment workers and/or factory owners in Bangladesh, what would you say?
We also are interested in interviewing anyone who has relatives or ancestors who sewed clothing in a sweatshop or factory or anyone who works in any other aspect of the clothing industry today. Please let us know!
We’d love to hear any additional thoughts or questions you have about this project. We look forward to hearing from you.
