I had the pleasure of meeting Michael of Faces Behind the Label recently in LA. His passion for migrant workers and his knowledge of the garment industry mean he’s uniquely positioned to make a big impact. I talk about the great potential that the garment industry has to be an important tool in lifting people out of poverty. This is EXACTLY what I mean.
Faces Behind the Label has developed a “Factory in a box” model, which seems like a great idea. Basically, they build a garment factory inside a shipping container and move it to an area where a few jobs could have a big impact.
