Livelihoods Hanging by a Thread: A Survey of Garments Workers and Firms

September 15, 2022

"Building  on existing  evidence  (e.g., ILO, 2022), the  objective  of this research  report  was to  assess 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 take a snapshot of the  impact  of the military  takeover  on  livelihoods  of  garment  sector  workers  and their  households. Questions  in the survey captured changes  in income since the  military takeover  as well as topics including changes in the overall wellbeing. This was coupled with a qualitative survey on a sample of 55 firms (garment sector firms and other firms gravitating around the garment sector such as retail, transport, hospitality and other services), to study the effects of the military takeover on businesses. The questions covered wide range of topics including changes in production, coping with changes in production as well as outlook for the near and medium term future."
