Unfashionable Working Conditions
Host Rachel Louise Snyder wrote a book about the world garment trade, and during her research she encountered many different people involved in making clothes. She also met Robin Cornelius, a social entrepreneur who is using technology to track working and environmental conditions in factories. That technology could be especially useful for examining new denim. In Turkey, many workers have been harmed by the dangerous process of sandblasting fashionable jeans. Reporter Dorian Jones met one of them.
