    Factory Girl is a story of a group of young Uyghur girls, one of many ethnic minorities living in China, that will pull at your heartstrings.Roshen is sixteen and looking forward to becoming a teacher and marrying her sweetheart All that changes when she is forced by the Chinese government to become a factory girl to serve her country for one year Her family risks losing their farm if she doesn t go The location of the factory is very far from her home in a totally different part of the country.Factory Girl is a familiar story The girls are isolated, abused, underfed and overworked The setting is different, but this is a sweatshop story It s unfair, and makes the reader feel indignant Their treatment is cruel, they are offered no protection, and have no contact with the outside world The threat of sexual advances is always real Roshen exhibits growth and matures throughout the story, but the other girls characterizations are indistinct A note at the end clarifying what is...

    Noted as a YA book, I found the story of Roshen, a sixteen year old Uyghur girl, to be an interesting and easy read Sent to work in a sewing factory in China for a year, Roshen seems to me to be similar to young girls in this country, New York particularly, the difference being that those N.Y sewing factories were shut down here almost a hundred years ago The book provides d...

    I read this in one day because I didn t want to stop It was a pleasure to read it, although it s a distressing story Sixteen year old Roshen, an excellent student, is nevertheless chosen to work in a clothing factory in Wuhan, Hubei, China, far to the south She must leave their good desert farm and boyfriend on the point of betrothal for at least a year She doesn t want to leave her family, whom she loves, but the price of not going is to allow the Chinese to take their farm, which has been in their family for generations The Chinese are slowly taking over their country and all the land and businesses of the Uygher people Having seen documentaries about Chinese garment factories, I knew it would be a sweatshop where girls are kept almost as slaves The group of 12 Uygher girls, however, suffered even for being a minority disliked by the Han Chinese The girls endure indignities, injuries, and cruelty both physical and emotional The food is often spoiled and never is it enough, or they are served banquet dishes with pork, which they cannot eat thei...

    If you thought you understood how awful cheap labor factories in Asia must be, think again This hair raising story follows a young Uyghur girl from Northwest China, as she is forcibly conscripted into indentured servitude to prevent the authorities from seizing her father s farm Given the news this very week about the Chinese government relocating a million Uyghurs into concentration camps, the book is extremely timely and terrifying.The book is written in a very simple and engaging style, appropriate given that the viewpoint character is from a village and knows nothing about the outside world We watch as she is ripped from her family, made to work 16 hour shifts, fed slops, housed on a plywood bed with no mattress, beaten, and denied both pay and time outside of the factory She is little than a slave, and is not allowed to contact her family It s horrific, a...

    I have literally never heard of this ethnic group before, but the apparent hostility they face from Chinese government is shocking I ve also never quite been faced with the fact that China apparently has some 19th century factory conditions with a side of involuntary indentured servitude going on My heart ached for Roshen the whole way through the book On the bright side, reading this for a while will really make you appreciate your current work conditions inc...
