We are half way through our 300 plus boxes. Today i found a memo book about the International Ladies Garment Workers Union. In 1981 the I.L.G.W.U represented more than 400,000 workers, mostly women, and many of them the sole supporters of their families. They engaged in a campaign to pursuade the government to stop importing garments made in low wage countries. This organizations also worked for decent American factories under the fair labor standards. They encouraged Americans to buy garments labeled with their signature label. They stated that their label endorsed the creativity of American design. The skill of American workmanship and the protection of women and children working in factories.
