Hi, Sarah!  I'm sorry for the late response.  I don't know very much about the downfalls of the cottage industry -- only that I'm not sure about the bargaining power of workers outside of a union-context.  The only exposure that I have to litigation around sweatshop issues is in the garment industry in east Asia -- not in India.   My organization, the Asian Law Caucus, has historically worked on behalf of garment workers on the West Coast and Asia, as has the Employment Law Center.  A better contact for this type of information is Bjorn, the ED at Sweatfree in the US.  Hope this helps.  Happy new year!  Veena

If no-one actually dies in the process from creating the fibres to getting a finished garment into stores its described as ethical, but its not much of an ethos in human terms. We really need to include a greater tranferrance of wealth
