Garment worker and mum Tania often cries alone when she isn't busy making clothes for Australian fashion brands.
She is one of hundreds of garment workers in Bangladesh and Vietnam whose daily suffering has been revealed in the first in-depth exploration of their lives in a new report.
"The findings are shocking and the case studies harrowing," says Oxfam chief executive Dr Helen Szoke.
"Systemic exploitation" of workers has been enabled by Australian companies, whose buying practices compel factory operators to reduce cost of production, the report reveals.
These buying practices include fierce price negotiation, short-term contracts with factories, and reducing delivery times at one end while imposing fines for not meeting those squeezed deadlines.
