This book is a research report. And the report was used as one of the supporting documents in The Indonesia People Tribunal on Living Wage and Decent Working Condition for Garment Workers as Fundamental Rights, conducted in Jakarta on 21 to 24 June 2014.
The research was on working condition and wages in textile products industries, specifically in footwear industry in Tangerang and Serang, Banten Province.

The research found that these violations have been conducted systematically.
