Livelihoods Hanging by a Thread: A Survey of Garment Workers and Firms
15 October 2022
Building on existing evidence, this research report assessed the impact of the military takeover on both garment factory workers and owners.
A survey of 1,600 current and former garment sector workers was conducted to give a snapshot of the impacts. Survey questions captured changes in income since the takeover, as well as changes in the overall wellbeing.
This was coupled with a qualitative survey of 55 garment sector and allied firms, such as retail, transport, and hospitality companies. Questions covered a wide range of topics including changes in production, coping with these changes, and the outlook in the near and medium terms.
