"Export-oriented garment factory closed due to lack of orders in Ashulia", 7 June 2023
Another export-oriented garment factory in Savar's Ashulia was closed due to lack of work orders. More than 1,000 workers have become unemployed as the factory has been closed for an indefinite period.
As the factory is closed before the upcoming Eid al-Adha, there is uncertainty about where the workers will find new work.
A worker named Jasim said that more than 1000 male and female workers were working at Designtex Fashion Limited Garments in Jirabo area of Ashulia.
As there was no work order in the factory, the authorities hung a notice on the gate of the factory declaring the closure of the workers for an indefinite period without paying the current month's salary. The workers returned home after seeing the notice of closure for an indefinite period.
