How this Cleveland pants factory is sewing hope - PBS NewsHour

Darrielle Snipes:

Barbara Moore and David Ogletree both work at VGS, a nonprofit that trains those living with disabilities by giving them hands-on experience.

VGS is currently producing 3,000 pairs of trousers a month. And these aren't just any pair of pants. They are made for the women who serve in the Army and Marines.

In the basement of VGS, the fabric is first cut into panels to make pants. Next, on the second floor, it takes only 40 minutes for employees to transform the panels into trousers.

Barbara sews on the buttons, but she also folds and presses the pants. She's worked at VGS for 16 years. And she doesn't let her disability stop her.
