Various groups support or embody the anti-sweatshop movement today.wholesale jerseys The National Labor Committee brought sweatshops into the mainstream media in the 1990s when it exposed the use of sweatshop and child labor to sew Kathie Lee Gifford's Wal-Mart label. United Students Against Sweatshops is active on college campuses. TheInternational Labor Rights Fund filed a lawsuit[9] on behalf of workers in China, Nicaragua, Swaziland, Indonesia, and Bangladesh against Wal-Mart charging the company with knowingly developing purchasing policies particularly relating to price and delivery time that are impossible to meet while following the Wal-Mart code of conduct. Labor unions,ed hardy shoes such as the AFL-CIO, have helped support the anti-sweatshop movement out of concern both for the welfare of people in the developing world and that companies will move jobs from the United States elsewhere in order to capitalize on lower costs. For example, the American labor union UNITE HERE, which represents garment workers, has only approximately 3,000 garment workers remaining in its base, because some of the larger garment making operations have already been transferred overseas.
Critics point out that sweatshop workers often do not earn enough money to buy the products that they make, even though such items are often commonplace goods such as t-shirts, shoes, and toys. However, defenders of such practices respond that critics of sweatshops are comparing wages paid in one country to prices set in rolex watches In 2003, Honduran garment factory workers were paid US$0.24 for each $50 Sean John sweatshirt, $0.15 for each long-sleeved t-shirt, and only five cents for each short-sleeved shirt – less than one-half of one percent of the retail price.[10] Comparing international costs of living, the $0.15 that a Honduran worker earned for the long-sleeved t-shirt was equal in purchasing power to $0.50 in the United States.[11]
Critics of sweatshops cite high savings, increased capital investment in these countries,rolex watches cheap, diversification of their exports and their status as trade ports as the reason for their economic success rather than sweatshops[12][13][14] and cite the numerous cases in the East Asian "Tiger Economies" where sweatshops have reduced living standards and wages.[15] They believe that better-paying jobs, increased capital investment and domestic ownership of resources will improve the economies of sub-Saharan Africa rather than sweatshops.rolex watches replica They point to good labor standards developing strong manufacturing export sectors in wealthier sub-Saharan countries such as Mauritius[16] and believe measures like these will improve economic conditions in developing nations.
