As most of the garment workers come of the poor family and comes from the remote areas and they have to attend to the duties on time, these workers have to hire a room near the factory where four to five huddle in a room and spend life in sub human condition. For four to five workers there is one common latrine and a kitchen for which they have to pay from Tk=2000 to Tk=2500/-.They share this amount among themselves to minimize the accommodation expense. One cannot believe their eyes in what horrible condition they have to pass out their time after almost whole day of hard work in the factory. After laborious job they come into their roost, cook their food and have their dinner or lunch in unhygienic floor or bed and sleep where they take their food. They share the single bed or sleep on the floor. The owners of these factories must not treat the workers as animals. The owners of these factories who drive the most luxurious car and live in most luxurious house do ever think that these are the workers who have made their living so juicy. Will these selfish owners ever think of these workers of their better living for the sake of humanity by providing better accommodation for these workers in addition to providing with the job.

Some garment workers live in hostel

The garment workers are come from village that’s why they don’t have any house their own in the city. They live in slum or some time they live in hostel, especially who don’t have any relatives in the city. In the hostel one girl share her room with other two or three girl. There is two or three bed inside the hostel room. Those beds make the room congested. But still they have to stay here because they don’t have any other option for staying. The garment worker who stay in the hostel actually they prefer hostel because of safety. I heard that some time they fight with each other for some reason and one of them leave the hostel. Actually the main reason of fighting between the hostel girl is – room sharing. In my point of view, I think it is really painful to share your room with unknown person.

The women are deprived too in their new workplace. She does not know what are her rights at workplace. So she is deprived of her rightful wages, though she exhausts her all life-energy competing with the machine at the factory. They are deprived from other rights of workers and human rights, as they are discriminated as women. These workingwomen are the most deprived section among the deprived class, poorest of the poor.

As most of our garment workers are women, they have to carry their small new born child to the factories as there is no one to look after these children at home. As their no baby care facilities in most of our factories these workers have to face untold sufferings; carrying their children in their lap in severe cold and severe heat during hot season, exposing the children to severe health hazard. Management has to look into this particular problem by making special facilities so that these particular workers have this facility for their uninterrupted routine work in their factories.

The woes of garment industry workers

The most of our garment workers are women. They work from morning till late night with minimum wages. These workers are to report to their duties on time otherwise they have to come under many queries or cut in wages. They are the workers on whom our country earns 76% of total foreign exchange. The management only looks into their interest; do they ever think about their minimum interest or their real problems? In many cases the answer is no. This is high time they start give proper attention to these groups of workers for the greater interest of this industry.
