Description - Threads of Labour by Angela Hale

"Threads of Labour" presents new empirical research by a network of garment workers' support organizations in ten different locations in Asia, Europe and Mexico and makes sense of global supply chains from the bottom up. It creates a blueprint for conducting worker-orientated action research in order to better understand and resist the negative impact of globalization on labour. It ensures that workers' voices reach those who are already trying to reconfigure global capitalism in more humane directions. It explores the ways in which workers might begin to develop new forms of organization that are more suited to securing gains in the global garment industry. It bridges the gap between activist and academic research, improving the conversation between these two groups.
