  Description     The film  
A programmer talks about not being able to find work in Canada in the computer field. Alberta Onyejekwe, a Canadian originally from Ghana, describes the difficulty she had adjusting to being a garment worker. Seeing workers denied their rights, she began to organize some of the women. Finally, a union was created despite the opposition of the bosses.
