In this day and age, I believe that we have a shortage of young people aspiring to work in manufacturing. I have realised that my role is so important to the client as well as the factory. I am able to see what needs to move and what must be stopped. I represent more than the product. The glass wall of overseas manufacturing is foggy and I function as the translator and the assurer. Being a person in my mid-twenties, I have little experience but I have seen manufacturing from both sides of the table and my technical skills are valuable to the discussion because I can both learn and advise. I understand expectations on the client’s end but now I see the struggles on the manufacturer’s end as well.
Brands and big companies have a responsibility to improve conditions. It's such a cop out to blame the consumer. We're ignorant, we don't have the time to research every part of their business particularly when it's so opaque. We are going to take things on face value.
