Just do it, they say
Do what? Wear sweatshop-made sneaks?
This has such a conscious vibe!
Sistah gurl, you'd make the 3rd World proud
for continuing to bring out the truth...
(and ain't they a trip wit that sweatshop ****!!)
Heck yes. Those bastions make MULTI billions of dollars per year, and go over there and EXPLOIT the labor of indigent people, paying them under 50 cents per hour (or is it under 50 cents per day?). Regardless, they don't pay them enough to even live off. Just another reminder of how babylon criminalizes the poor and the black, brown and red, but not the BIG crooks with big bank accounts, who also commit crimes against humanity. But the poor folk on this soil support those crooks by handing over their paychecks to them to wear the "brand" all over their bodies. If we don't start waking up to this madness, and stopping it in its tracks? Don't get me started.
Sistah gurl, I'm right there with you. I'm always trying to stay abreast of Child Labor issues & also this nerve-racking issue of sweatshops & who is the latest clothier to use children in 3rd world companies to work like "runaway slaves" for pennies on the dollar... it is such a senseless shame!!
