My niece is doing a paper on conditions in the garment factories. Her focus was the era of my Grandmother in the mid twenties. It was scary that I could fill in many of the blank spaces from my days in the 90's. The faces of the people working in the sweat shops had changed and the locations had changed but I could describe the places. For the most part I worked in the warehouses and visited from time to time. However, I was there enough to understand the conditions. I didn't think much of it then but now these factories are overseas and the conditions are likely worse.
