From the Back Cover
An Entertaining And Thought-Provoking Look Behind The Curtain Of The Global Economy
When journalist and traveler Kelsey Timmerman wanted to know more about where his clothes came from and who made them, he began a journey that would take him from Honduras to Bangladesh to Cambodia to China and back again. In Where Am I Wearing?, Kelsey introduces you to the human side of globalization—the factory workers, their names, their families, and their way of life—and bridges the gap between global producers and consumers.
Updates to this paperback edition include:
The author's astonishing search for the garment worker in Honduras who inspired the book and who underwent a death-defying journey of love, sacrifice, and hope
The lives of the factory workers and their families now, and how the global financial crisis affected them
A visit to a fair trade Ethiopian shoe factory that is changing lives one job at time
Discussion guide for teachers and educators, focusing on sweatshops, child labor, fair trade, individual and corporate social responsibility, and other global economic issues

A sweat shop in the USA would be a travesty and unjust. One in Cambodia simply keeps children from prostitution.
