See, some of them complain about poor working conditions, but some are just thankful that they even have a job. Little money is better than no money. And especially in places where money and jobs are hard to come by, this is all they can get.



Precisely.


This is why feminism punches down, to keep the starving hordes of the Third World from dragging them down to their level.

I don't understand this thread. Even $100 shirts these days are made in China/India where child slavery is prevalent and poor working conditions are prevalent... so what do you want people to do? Spend $200 on locally made feminist shirts? It's not up to the feminists to change working conditions, it's up to the government of those countries that have poor working conditions.

Real life is not a fairy tales, no shirts/items are made with love and warmth... most items you buy are made from people in bad working conditions.

And for the people represented by those governments not to buy into this rhetoric that government regulation is unfairly targeting business owners and capitalism.

Profit is a function of costs involved in producing a good. If everyone sold shirts for $70, the one that could produce them the cheapest will have the best competitive edge. Regulations are hence necessary to protect workers from businesses wanting to push the boundaries for how cheaply it can produce their shirts. This is why so much stuff sold in North America is made in these third world countries where corporations can avoid these regulations that they can't escape with domestic labor. Unfortunately those are also countries where the above mentioned governments represented by people don't exist. They are governments represented by their own interests.

I see the irony, but to be fair, don't we exploit men too? If that is true, than people of both genders are being exploited, not just women.
but it's mainly women who work in these sweat shops

Many third wave feminists don't care about anyone outerlying their condensed and shallow little bubble. All they want is to make ridiculous demands domestically and complain about trivial matters like 'manspreading', as supposed to tackling issues outside of first world, western countries, where women are treated pretty well considering. Even asia is more misogynist than we are, for christ's sake. third waver whiners just want anything to harp about that's minor, and doesn't require cited research, effort, or actual charity. they only want to defend themselves most of the time, instead of standing up for other women internationally who are exploited.

No offense if you wear those clothes, but they are ugly as hell. It's no wonder people would rather buy Made In China clothes.

Err.. how much is the exchange rate from that place versus a dollar?

In Korea, it's already in a 1000 and it's only cents here in America.

Actually the article mentions the workers get paid one quarter of the LOCAL average salary.

So this factory is not just shit, it´s actually even shittier then most factories *there*.

Really sounds like they did a great job for these women! (and their bank accounts)

No really, this article triggers me, as in I feel a rage towards the fucks who have these fuck t-shirts produced 14 dollars per 250 then sell them for 70 dollars a piece while doing these to these women (who are not important because they are not white).

Fuck them!!! *

*Disclaimer: I did not mean they were sex objects by that statement.
