Labor Links from Oxfam

Hi Micro-revolutionaries!

I’ve been following your blog and just wanted to share with you some online resources that we have created on labour rights issues in the garment sector. Feel free to share these with friends etc.

Best wishes,
Sarah, Labour Rights Advocacy Officer, Oxfam Australia


In My Shoes
In My Shoes is a bilingual blog produced by a Sewani, 24-year old footwear worker in Indonesia. Sewani’s blog explores the day to day challenges faced by factory workers trying to survive on the minimum wage. The blog aims to raise awareness about the situation faced by workers producing for some of the world’s most coveted brands. You can also send your questions or comments to Sewani.

Adidas: Stop Wearing us Out
This blog is written by several workers who were sacked from an adidas supplier following their participation in a strike for better wages. The bloggers want justice and ask for your support.

Hamdani: the human face of production and Suparjo’s adidas story are two short films that share the stories of former union leaders who struggle to gain re-employment following their unfair dismissal from an adidas supplier.
