Samples of 60 garment workers were interviewed through observation and well structured questionnaire for data collection. Four types of issues, eg., profile of respondents, working hours and salary, health care and sanitation opportunity, and employer behavior towards employees were inquired to measure the socio-economic status and related perspectives of garments workers in Bangladesh.
