Ready Made Garments (RMG) sector contributes around 80% of Bangladesh’s total export earnings making “Made in Bangladesh” a global tag. However, RMG workers who contribute towards the economic milestone (Bangladesh being one of the top three RMG exporters in the world) face a huge challenge in their lives.
