Eddie Webster and Katherine Joynt
Johannesburg’s fashion district’s cut-make-and-trim workers are at the bottom of the pile of precarious workers. The mainly migrant workers who work in cramped rooms in run-down buildings are at the bottom of the value chain of a once vibrant clothing industry. Eddie Webster and Katherine Joynt look at why this is the case.
