An unprecedented industrial campaign by workers in the garment industry that saw the monthly minimum wage increased from US$25 to US$43 is continuing.
Millions of workers are still on strike demanding the minimum wage be increased to US$73 a month, as well as improvements in a series of other conditions.
In response, the factory owners are laying off thousands of workers, while the government has enacted laws to stop street demonstrations, and is arresting hundreds of organisers.
