With the Labour Party's return to power in 2022, the accreditation body Ethical Clothing Australia regains national funding to help businesses comply with the law. They team with union investigators to secure legally mandated wage levels and benefits for those who make the bulk of Australia's domestic textile, clothing and footwear products. Bec Zajac, of Women on the Line interviewed Vietnamese immigrant garment worker "Hong Nguyen," with translation by union organizer Li Nguyen; Sabina Crawley, Ethical Clothing Australia; and Beth McPherson, Textile, Clothing and Footwear Union. Originally recorded when Conservatives zeroed out ECA's funding in 2014. Updated to 2022 by Frieda Werden, WINGS series producer. Music excerpted from "Which Side Are You On," sung by Natalie Merchant.
Recorded at 3CR Community Radio in Melbourne, for the national feminist radio series Women on the Line. Updates recorded at WINGS HQ in British Columbia, Canada. Music excerpted from "Which Side Are You On," sung by Natalie Merchant.
