On the Ethics of the Garment Industry

Cambodia’s garment industry was developed in the 1990s and has become the largest export earner for the nation. The women who work in the factories usually work six days and 48 hours a week, and they use their meager earnings to support extended families in rural areas. In a news video article prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, a source of reporting and analysis of religion news, representatives of the New York-based Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, Cambodia’s government and U.S. clothing companies offer their perspectives on the struggle to balance living wages, price point pressures and the competition smaller nations face to remain competitive destinations for clothing manufacturing.
