garment industry in cambodia
Cambodia makes clothes for large transnational companies such as H&M and Gap.
The garment industry contributes $5.5 billion to the national economy - that's around one third of the country's GDP (all money earned from the production of goods and services).
However, conditions for workers are often very difficult, with employees working long hours for less than $3 per day. Workers have few rights and can struggle to feed their families.
The large companies which sell these clothes, that you and I buy, make huge profits from this industry. In 2014 H&M made 2,000,000,000 US$ profit.
TASK: Watch the above documentary and note the main points.
