JAKARTA (JP): Thirty-four workers of the PT Duta Busana Danastri garment factory called on the National Commission on Human Rights yesterday to influence the management to treat them fairly.

"The management forces us to work at night under day-time conditions. We demand that the management provide us with extra food and transportation facilities," Siti Nurrofiqoh, the spokeswoman for the protesters, said.

Nurrofiqoh, 25, said the workers need extra food to stay healthy and transportation from home and back again when they work the night shift because most of them are women.
