Quartz: The thing that makes Bangladesh’s garment industry such a huge success also makes it deadly


In the run-up to JustJobs Network’s event ‘From Factory Floor to the Middle Class‘, Executive Director Sabina Dewan spoke to  Quartz about the political-economy of the Bangladeshi garments industry.

Ms Dewan pointed out that the government of Bangladesh has in the past publicly pitched lax regulations and cheap labor as a way to attract investments to the sector.
