Worker Economic Resilience

In this week’s Garment Worker Diaries blog, which will be the first in a series of blogs on the same theme, we begin a discussion about an idea central to this most recent phase of the GWD initiative, which is economic resiliency.

When we speak about resiliency, we mean the ability to avoid, withstand, and bounce back from economic stress. When we speak about the economic resiliency of workers in this context, we mean to ask how well were garment workers in Bangladesh able to cope with the impact of COVID-19 over the past year.

Because we began tracking their resiliency almost immediately when the pandemic began, we are able to have a relatively well informed conversation on how well workers have fared.

Over the next few weeks we will dig deeper into degrees of economic resiliency to find out whether or not certain attributes, such as digital account ownership, gave workers a better shot at enduring what has been a very tough time.

We hope you’ll check out the full blog, and if you have any questions for us or the workers, please write to
