List Of Small, Local Businesses You Can Support This Eid
As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has caught the world in a riptide, people from all walks of life have suffered its impact in their daily lives. Needless to say, people at the bottom rung of the economic ladder are those who have borne the maximum casualties, in terms of health concerns and greater exposure to the rampant virus.
On top of that, the fear of being laid off or sharp increase in working hours without even so much as a living wage has become common. In Pakistan, the biggest culprit of the latter is the textile industry.
It has recently come to light that the textile moguls in Pakistan which hold the monopoly over the general market, have been massively laying off their factory workers. In some cases, these giants are not even paying their workers the living wage. As a result, the staff faces the brunt of the situation. It is not enough for us to only raise our voice on the matter, but taking action is also important. Therefore, this Eid, we urge you to step away from the giants in the industry and move towards those that are not financially depriving their employees. Further, we should support small local clothing businesses, which are not only offering exceptional quality at much lower rates, but are also in need of our aid as their profits too have been disturbed due to the pandemic.
To make this step even easier for you, we have compiled a list of clothing lines for people of all ages in Pakistan that are offering a variety of noteworthy outfits for you this Eid. You may order from the comfort and safety of your home.
