Summary: Americans have been shocked by media reports of the dismal working conditions in factories that make clothing for U.S. companies. But while well intentioned, many of these reports about child labor and sweatshop practices rely on stereotypes of how Third World factories operate, ignoring the complex economic dynamics driving the global apparel industry. To dispel these misunderstandings, Jane L. Collins visited two v...ery different apparel firms and their factories in the United States and Mexico. Moving from corporate headquarters to factory floors, her study traces the diverse ties that link First and Third World workers and managers, producers and consumers. Collins examines how the transnational economics of the apparel industry allow firms to relocate or subcontract their work anywhere in the world, making it much harder for garment workers in the United States or any other country to demand fair pay and humane working conditions. Putting a human face on globalization, Threads shows not only how international trade affects local communities but also how workers can organize in this new environment to more effectively demand better treatment from their distant corporate employers.

Collins, Jane Lou is the author of Threads Gender, Labor, and Power in the Global Apparel Industry, published 2003 under ISBN 9780226113722 and 0226113728. Three hundred seventy six Threads Gender, Labor, and Power in the Global Apparel Industry textbooks are available for sale on ValoreBooks.com, sixty four used from the cheapest price of $1.00, or buy new starting at $22.50.
