On the centennial of the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire, hear from a Walmart retail worker, a warehouse worker, and a Bangladeshi garment worker. “Sweatshop, Warehouse, Wamart: A Worker Truth Tour” aims to raise awareness about the system created by Walmart that keeps workers in a cycle of low wages, with no voice on the job, and working in dangerous conditions.
Aleya Akter, garment worker in Bangladesh
Kalpona Akter, former child garment worker, Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity
Robert Hines, warehouse worker in Chicago
Cynthia Murray, Walmart associate in Laurel, Maryland
The tour is sponsored by Making Change at Walmart (a campaign of the United Food and Commercial Workers), International Labor Rights Forum, Jobs with Justice, SweatFree Communities, and United Students Against Sweatshops.
