On today's show, we check in with our reporters in Bangladesh. We hear what it was like inside the factory where the Planet Money men's T-shirt was knit, dyed, cut and sewn. And we ask: Will Bangladesh be able to move beyond making T-shirts?
Here are some pictures from the factory.
The fabric is cut into pieces.
Some of the workers wear metal gloves to protect their hands. (Think: Chain mail.)
The pieces are sewn together into shirts.
And it becomes the Planet Money T-shirt.
