FIJI: 3,000 Factory Jobs Lost Since Coup
Web reports in Fiji have shown that over 3,000 garment factory workers have lost their jobs since the political crisis in the country last year.
In the report, Secretary of the Textile Clothing and Footwear Council, Ray Dunstan, claimed that buyers prefer to look towards the Asian countries to make their garment purchases.
Many fear that more jobs will be lost in the near future, as workers are forced to work shortened shifts with some only working three days a week.
