Mitri: The Importance of Collective Action4 November 2015
“After joining the group, I understood many things. Now I understand my rights as a home worker. If in a factory we act together, while as a home worker, I work alone. Because now we act together in a group, “toke” (employer) listened to our proposal to increase our wages. If it was only one voice, most probably they will not considered the idea. Now our voice can be heard.”
