Bangladeshi factory workers ‘enslaved’

Nobel laureate Muhammad Yunus decries working conditions in country’s garment factories.

Bangladesh’s factory workers are being treated like slaves, Muhammad Yunus, the country’s Nobel laureate, has said.

In an interview with Al Jazeera, Yunus said Bangladeshi should not be a “country of slave labour” and that the situation must change.

“We want to have a country with dignified women working with their beautiful skills so that they can make everybody happy with our products, and at the same time, we earn a decent income for ourselves. That’s the whole idea,” Yunus said.
