A study published in May by Clean Clothes Campaign, which lobbies to improve conditions for garment factory workers, said overtime - up to 15 hours a week - often goes unpaid in Romania, with the group claiming many workers were living in "survival mode".

Factories were poorly ventilated, the group said, while the denial of basic human rights by managers - "they often need to find a replacement worker in order to take toilet breaks" - were common.

Workers at the Textile Blue Wash in Covasna earned about $482 a month, and many took on bank loans to survive after they were made redundant [Elisa Oddone/Al Jazeera]

Marina and some other 70 colleagues, mostly women between 29 and 58, were all paid the monthly minimum gross salary of 2,080 RON ($482), which translates to $264 after tax.

The jeans the workers used to produce sell for approximately $100 to $150 for one pair, half of their monthly wage.





As someone famously said... our loss is their gain.
