Most of us are familiar with the term sweatshop and get the gist when we hear the word Boston Bruins Sharp Shooter T-shirt. But it’s difficult to fully appreciate the horror of what’s involved in modern day sweatshops.
Think ridiculously low wages and long hours. How would you fancy working 60 hours a week for 20p an hour? Consider dangerous conditions, labour laws that aren’t worth the paper on which they’re written and trade unions pushed out of the picture. It might seem remote, something that happens in far-flung lands, but these folk are producing clothes that end up in our shops and on our backs. And in the garment industry, it’s more often than not women and children that are being exploited. Women frequently make up the majority of employees in garment sweatshops. Many factors contribute to this state of affairs, but it basically boils down to them being seen as easier to exploit. Nice, eh? They suffer abuse and harassment, as well as awful working conditions.
Child labour continues to be a major issue. There are literally millions of youngsters round the world in employment and missing out on formal education. We’re talking about kids between the ages of 5 and 11. The nearest they get to a school is maybe walking past one on the way to the factory. In recent years, there’s been a lot of discussion regarding free trade agreements. There’ll no doubt be more in the future as Britain’s relationship with Europe and the rest of the world shifts position. As much as these arrangements can be beneficial, they also carry risks. Especially for workers in vulnerable situations. Policies that protect people and the environment are all too easily undermined when such agreements are put into effect. Liberalisation of trade can generate big bucks and it can also see the downgrading of rights and standards. Corporate giants have, at times, been known to pay lip service to social responsibility and place more emphasis on balance sheets and bottom lines.
