Ladydrawers - Zoned: The Mysterious "Foreign" Outposts Inside the USA

Tuesday, 12 November 2013 10:09 By Anne Elizabeth Moore and Melissa Mendes, Truthout | Op-Ed

2013 1112ld fbNew Ladydrawer Melissa Mendes draws the latest installment of our yearlong look at international gender and labor issues (check out "Fast Fashion," "Let's Go Shopping" and "The Business of Thrift" with Julia Gfrörer), which looks at the wacky world of Foreign-Trade Zones and the labor problems they foster. Despite their rampant growth in recent years, few know they exist. However, they contribute greatly to the annual gross domestic product - and the global garment trade.

As always, our previous strips can be found here. We'll take December off but will be back in January to explore trade policies and border patrol - and what it means for your personal sense of style.
