A Bangladeshi Worker's Dream

"If I could earn 4500 taka a month ($75 or 37 cents/hr).
For me this would be a dream. I could afford to buy milk for my baby, and baby food. I could repay my loans. I could buy fish and fruit sometimes. I could buy a new dress, so I could go out once in my life
without having to wear my dirty dress from work."

from testimony of Maksuda, a Bangladeshi garment worker, from a tour organized by the National Labor Committee
