With two young children, Deng Guilian hadn't planned on going back to work. That changed after her husband was arrested while investigating labor abuses at Chinese suppliers for Ivanka Trump's brand.In May, Deng's husband, Hua Haifeng, and two of his colleagues were accused of illegally using secret recording devices and thrown in jail while investigating factories that made shoes for Ivanka Trump's brand. The group they were working for, a New York non-profit called China Labor Watch, obtained evidence of forced overtime and pay as low as $1 an hour, as well as a video of a manager berating a worker for apparently arranging shoes in the wrong order.Trump's brand and spokesman declined to comment for this story, but in her 2017 best-seller, "Women Who Work," Trump spoke about her commitment to improving "the lives of countless women and girls" and acknowledged that her father's presidential campaign gave her "an unprecedented opportunity to advocate for change".Her daughter, Arabella, who is one year younger than Chen Chen, has also been an inspiration.Deng said she has no regrets.On a recent Sunday off, Deng's children wandered in and out of the kitchen as she cooked.At 5 p.m., when it was time for Deng to go back to work, Bo Bo darted around his mom.
