Maquilla textile factory we visited. Not the worst, or the owners would not have let us in, but still very, very bad by anyone's standards. Incredible pace/intensity of work, heat, no paid sick leave, no right of return to a job after being sick, no benefits...roughly $33CAD per week the average wage.

 

Owners/managers of this place hoping to get good reviews as they were bidding on a number of contracts from 'sensitive' labels.
