On my last afternoon in Indonesia, I met Susan and Inayah, two of the workers at the factory where our yarn is made. For them, the job at the plant is like winning a scholarship. They got it through good grades in high school, and the company puts them up in a dormitory for the first three years. They are saving money for college. Susan wants to study economics and get a job in a bank. (@radiosmith/NPR)
