36. Textile factories that were once based in the USA,
from my understanding, the conditions were never as deplorable as what's going on in Chinese factories, and sweatshops in 3rd world countries. I'm sure your mother was underpaid and had to put up with lousy working conditions. No disrespect to your hard working mother, but I think some workers have it even worse.
