These fascinating videos for NPR’s Planet Money by filmmaker Joshua Davis follow the production of a typical t-shirt and explore the lives of those working in the modern garment industry.
Globalization has changed the way many people live and work. With millions working long hours for very low wages to produce the clothes that end up on Western high streets, the films ask whether the demand for cheap products helps or hurts the people who make them?
We feel like these films really bring to life how far a product travels, and how many people are involved in producing it, before reaching the shops. What do you think?
