Publisher: International Journal of Research in Business and Social Sciences, 10 (7), 389-398.
It has been widely acknowledged that female workers account for 80% of the Ready Made Garment (RMG) industry’s workforce in Bangladesh but a number of studies estimated different debatable male to female workers’ ratios. This paper leverages the data of the ‘Mapped in Bangladesh’ (MiB) project and reports male to female ratio to be 42:58.
2. Unboxing the Ready Made Garments (RMG) Sector of Bangladesh
Publisher: International Journal of Research in Business and Social Sciences, 10 (8), 304-312.
The ready-made garment (RMG) sector of Bangladesh has developed immensely under the broad radar of the export market, and its size is beyond imagination. Unfortunately, there has been no study that explores the whole universe of the RMG sector of Bangladesh. The discussion of this paper intends to explore the methodology of unboxing the whole universe of the RMG sector of Bangladesh that includes small and medium-sized manufacturing and processing units that are often involved with subcontracting for other factories are suppliers of the domestic market, are producers of accessories, and are providing backward linkages and associated services.
