    “This job provides better working conditions than what I’ve previously experienced. Before this job, I was working as an assistant with a local tailor, but my wages were extremely low and not enough to meet basic needs. I am now able to pay for my little brother and sister to go to school. I also can save money so that I can participate in higher education sometime in the future.”

    “Previous jobs I’ve held have paid very low wages for the same amount of work. This job provides decent working conditions, which I have not had access to in the past. I am now able to afford school and better food for my daughter.”
