November 2020 Update: Another Support Package for the Garment Industry?

In our final Garment Worker Diaries blog post for the year, November 2020 Update: Another Support Package for the Garment Industry?, we both summarize the status of the garment workers in our study through the end of November, and also discuss what some are predicting might be a tough winter for the RMG sector in Bangladesh.

In short, we aren’t seeing the signs of a second garment-production crisis as told to us through our respondents’ data. It might yet be just too early, and we might never see the signs if the government steps in to support the industry with a second stimulus package. But you can be sure that no matter what happens, our data will reflect what’s really going on among the workers, just as we captured the rapid uptick in digital wages in May, and the mini-prosperity the industry has buoyed upon over the summer and into the fall.

We do hope it will be a good winter, and a better year in 2021 for all.

In the meantime, take a look at where in the world, of all the places the garments they make are shipped to, garment workers would like to visit. Some of them would like to just stay home, which is completely relatable. If you have any questions for us, or the garment workers, please send them to questions@workerdiaries.org and we’ll be sure to pass them along.
