Due to obstinacy and obduracy of the garment owners, the garment workers out of rage come out of the factory and take to the street causing damages to the public and private vehicles, shopping mall and block the roads for hours together causing inhuman suffering to the general public. To make the situation worst some cadres of political parties participate in the destruction activities forcing the law enforcers to intervene. The police sometime have to open fire when situation goes beyond control causing loss of valuable lives. The government and garment owners must sit immediately and find some amicable settlement so that this untoward incident does not repeat again and save the industry from total ruination.

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.

Most of the workers came from the village, could not income paper money in the village. After arrived Dhaka/ cities they could get a chance, at the same time bound to work as without money city life impossible, can not continue ever one hour. The garments owners take thisĀ  change as there is huge number worker available with competitive price. Although they know there are doing more work compare to there salary, but they can not say anything. They work 12-14 hours daily, even for whole night during shipment, despite this violate legislation. They walk down 6-7 km to reach the factory, again walk the same way to return home. They face the danger of insecurity and sexual harassment. They feel helpless in the machine-like environment of the City. They are compelled to seek shelter in the suburban slum area to maintain their lives with such a meagre income. In spite of such ordeal she dreams of freedom, leading a decent life. The opportunity of work has enabled her to dream. But if that dream is shattered? If they lose job? If the factory closes down? So they accept all exploitation without question.
