This makes me so Angry – Abhorent exploitation of Third World Workers

Do you buy products from The Gap, H & M, Walmart and The Gap?

Do you realise what dangerous practices you are supporting?

Do you realise that people, primarily young girls suffer as a result of us in the western world wanting to wear some clothing that may look stylish or has a “brand” name.

After many workers in Bangladesh died a horrific death in a clothing factory fires, 3 1/2 million factory workers protested to increase their wage from 29 cents an hour to 35 cents an hour. And The Gap refused. The police were called and more girls will die, just so we can choose to buy clothes that feather the corporate giant’s nest egg. Do they give back? Do they improve conditions? Is their only legacy: Greed?

I am so angry….

Something to ponder about and take action today. Do not buy these products!!! Take a stand with you wallet and your consumer choice. Exert pressure on the companies and tell them why!
