I joined the GWC because their mission is to organize Los Angeles workers to change the local industry for the better, and emphasize the importance of fashion brand accountability.

For example, we share information with workers so they can negotiate for better working conditions and get their peers and managers involved too. I want Fashion Revolution to expose the problems prevalent in the fashion industry so that customers, the public, and the government will demand real changes from retailers and brands.

Faith is an important driver. Fashion Revolution wants to change that. We are expected to work like machines, just carry out the operations without asking any questions.

Supplying this information shouldn't just be a way of pushing the industry towards a more fair and sustainable future but it should also be part of the customer service experience. Even when workers file cases at the Labor Commission, we must do our own investigations in order to get this information.

Over 45, garment workers in Los Angeles are working in a sweatshop industry.

They want to dress you" announced that the fashion chain Forever 21 "is about to open its first store in Britain", overlooking the branch that opened in Birmingham Bullring last November. And crucially, this requires brands to trace the journey of their products right down to the raw material level. Using clothing labels from inside the factory, IndustriALL trade union members we were able to check the online supplier lists disclosed by brands for whose labels they had found. And I ask, gently, why they don't clean the carpet.

During the manufacturing process our clothes pass through many pairs of hands before they ever reach the shop floor or, increasingly, the screens of our phones and computers.

You live to sell the next product. Pollution and waste created as a result of the way our clothes are produced and consumed continues to damage our ecosystems.

Not buying means gone. The data and information disclosed by companies needs to be accessible and detailed enough to take action upon.
