Jean Jenkins, Reader in Employment Relations at Cardiff University is to present at this year’s Hay Festival on Tuesday 28th May.
Jean is working on a UK government-funded Global Challenges Research Fund project with WISERD, which investigates the availability of access to remedy for garment workers in today’s garment supply chain. Her presentation, Still Fighting the ‘Parasite Industry’, shines a light on the gross exploitation that thrives in clothing manufacture and how workers are struggling against the odds to fight back.
