Week 12 Discussion

We learn this week that sustainability in the context of labor practices means consideration for the health and ethical well being of workers in all stages of garment production- from the harvesting of raw material to the preparation and manufacture of a finished garment. There is, unfortunately, a continued presence of sweatshops, both at home and abroad. (def: a shop or factory in which  employees work for long hours and/or for low wages and /or under unhealthy conditions) 
1. While many argue that sweatshops must be shut down at all costs, many have argued that the employees would be far worse off without the work. Please read the article here Link   (Links to an external site.)Banning Sweatshops Only Hurts the Poor  and share your thoughts. Should sweatshops exist? Please be detailed in your post, using knowledge from our lecture and the article.
