Fast Fashion Working Conditions
Garment workers are subjected to the exploitative nature of the fast fashion industry, facing abusive and unsafe factory conditions. 80% of these workers are young, Asian women from poor and rural backgrounds who are overworked, underpaid and trapped by job insecurity. They assemble cheap, low-quality clothing in order for large retailers to keep up with the quick turnover of superficial trends, all of which is perpetuated by the habits of modern consumerism.
