Video Testimonies: Alta Gracia Workers

One of the sources for our Model Tee Project is Alta Gracia. The people who sew Alta Gracia earn a living wage -- more than three times the minimum wage in the Dominican Republic -- and are treated with respect and have a union, a voice on the job. The living-wage union-made factory is the fruit of more than a decade of students and workers collaborating across borders to change the garment industry for the better.
