Work Tip 1 - Get a move on

Going to the Market

Shed shyness, apprehension, nerves and put on roller skates — this is what over 2,000 workers in textile factories in the city of Coimbatore, India, have been urged to do.

For others, not having the protective gear to go with the skates is another danger to face on top of having cotton balls fly into their mouths and getting stuck in their stomachs.
