'The authors give a voice to a part of Thailand's workforce invisible to many Thais, and to consumers across Asia and around the world who buy the cheap goods they produce. That voice is authentic, and paired with sound analysis of the issues raised.'
Chris Hogg, BBC Asia correspondent , Shanghai
'The labels on your clothes do not say 'Made by Burmese migrant women in Thailand', but once you have read this book you will carry that information with you. Many thanks to the authors for exposing these conditions.'
Jackie Pollock, director, MAP Foundation, Thailand
'This book reveals the hidden face of Thailand's industrial and migration policies by giving visibility and voice to Burmese female migrants employed in the country's ready-made garment and knitwear factories. The authors shine the spotlight, not only on the women's work experiences on the factory floor, but also on the way they juggle care responsibilities for their children. It is a compelling story about ordinary women making hard decisions under precarious conditions as they live transborder lives.'
