After watching the documentary ‘Blood
After watching the documentary ‘Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts and also as per my own perspective I believe that if the factories were boycotted the circumstances of the factory workers would be even worse. It can be seen from the documentary that those people who are working in the factories are working hard to earn money so that they can support themselves and also earning livelihood for their families back home. The factory workers have now been accustomed to work 8-10 hours a day and sometimes work 7 days a week. The more the workers do the more they will earn to send back to their families. If the factories were boycotted the circumstances of the factory workers would be even worse as there are so many jobs involved in the factories the workers will lose their jobs and also keeping in mind the problem of unemployment over there. If the workers lose their jobs they will not be able to support themselves as well as support the livelihood for their families. The factory workers only priority is earning. It is believed that there are around 20,000 small scale manufacturing factories among the clusters of beehive hutments. The workers’ lives can be improved by providing access to clean water, improved sanitation, waste management services, a better quality of life, working with the factory owners to release children from work so that they can go to school, better working conditions, a safe and secure working environment, along with providing better infrastructure, wider roads, and better drainage systems, by offering minimum wages. This can be achieved by working with the local authorities and other service providers for the sustainable provision of basic needs, through local people and also municipal authorities to provide them basic needs such as safe water, sanitation etc.
