Overwhelming working conditions, large unhealthy and sometimes even dangerous factories. But why ? The big players in the fashion industry cause competition between different manufacturers as well as different countries. These factories have no choice but to reduce the cost of labor (workers' wages) if they want to remain competitive in the clothing market.
