More than 95% of all American apparel is made overseas before it is sold in the U.S. As consumers demand more accountability, that number is starting to slowly change. But making clothes in America is still hard work. We go inside a Massachusetts factory to see how it's done. Also, thousands rallied in Iraq Friday to demand that U.S. troops leave the country. We get the latest from NPR's Jane Arraf in Baghdad. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Jan. 24, 2020, full broadcast.
