Personal highlights

  1. Made in Bangladesh: a massive textile industry because of cheap labour
  2. Textile Industry: 77% of Bangladesh's export and about 82% of its GDP!
  3. Sweatshops: workshop or factory where people work long hours for little money
  4. Nuru Market: visiting some of the endless small sweatshops in Old Dhaka
  5. Sewing machines: many old Singer machines but also some new high tech
