Sweatshop Alternatives

3 September 2007

In my last article, I wrote about poverty, especially among people who have jobs. Many of the workers living in poverty around the world are working in the clothing industry; most of the clothing available for sale in the US is produced in sweatshops (which we can define as places where basic worker rights are lacking or where the workers do not earn a wage that allows them to support themselves and their families). But there are alternatives. I researched them today and put together a new section on clothing on my personal web site's Social Responsibility Page, if you are interested.
