Daube worked as a freelance photographer assigned to talk to Win, a garment factory worker, and other community organizers from Workers Information Center (WIC), the goal is to provide support for each other, sharing key information about labor rights and talking about the latest issues they are experiencing at work. On December 24, 2013 the labor unions stated to strike, asking for double the minimum wage.
