Summary
Although Australia has a first-world economy, hidden within it a third-world industry thrives. Pieceworkers sewing at home are paid per item by clothing companies. They work with punishing deadlines, often seven days a week, for a pitiful few dollars per hour. Hundreds of thousands of workers from non-English speaking backgrounds suffer in these archaic conditions. They have no sick pay, retirement plan or insurance. Now, Hien Tran, former Vietnamese refugee turned union representative, is speaking up for her fellow workers, trapped by their circumstances and financial need. Member of a series: Fearless Series: Stories from Asian Women
