A sweatshop is where people who work in factories are forced towork long hours for very little pay, because there is no other wayto earn a living. . In the US, sweatshops are illegal because we have a minimum wageboth Federally and State wide Most sweatshops are in Asiancountries and mostly women a…re the victims since they are in thegarment industry where they sew bras and other lingerie items forvery little. On the upside, at least they are earning money which alot of their countrymen are not. . A sweatshop's working environment is considered to be unacceptablydifficult or dangerous- especially by developed countries with highstandards of living. A sweatshop is a factory or workshop, especially those that makegarments. This is where manual workers are employed at low wagesand under poor working conditions. (MORE)
Unofficial sweatshops have been around for quite a while. Most ofthe established official sweatshops have only been around since themid 1900s.
They're not, they make your clothes. That jumper you're wearing wasmade by a fat black kid.
People are looking for ways to cut cost in creating product. When one of them would rather cut corners and save money rather than pay proper wages, sweatshops are created.
\nsweat shop labour is a way for making poor people get paid less than the minimum wage. and the minimum wage is $8.50 but many companies are giving their workers/slaves less than 1 dollar an hour. Is this equitable? This should be illegal, what are you going to do about it?
There are sweatshops around the world. However, there appear to be more reported incidents of alledged sweatshops in Asia and south America
none, the sweatshops are all owned by local operators and not by the actual product seller because of liability reasons
No. The aspect of a sweatshop is to have vulnerable people working long hours in very, very poor conditions for little money. In some countries children are working in these areas as young a 5 years old
In general sweatshops are not good. They pay poor wages andoverwork those who work there. They take advantage of the poor. Theonly good thing you could say about them is that they produce goodsat a very low cost.
Nepal is a landlocked country located in Asia continent. In north it borders China and on others it borders India. It is a mountainous country mostly and plain on the southern side. The capital city is Kathmandu which is mix of urban and traditional. 8 of the tallest mountains in the world are locat…ed in Nepal including the tallest one which is Mt. Everest. Gautam Buddha who founded Buddhism was born in Nepal as well. Tourists come from all over the world for visiting this beautiful country mostly for an adventurous visits like trekking and bungee jumping. I live in Eastern part of country in a town called Itahari. It is small country compared to others but it is a beautiful country and if you are looking to visit it, go for it. (MORE)
The advantage of a sweatshop is that it provides cheap labor so acompany can earn more profit. It also makes the cost of buying anitem cheaper for the consumer.
A sweatshop is a factory where workers are crowded together inunsafe conditions. They are paid low wages and little care is takento protect them.
Because the people are child abusers and they don't give a living soul for them so they say heck with it make clothes and that's that. They ignore the rights of the children for their own personal gain. A brand-name shoe company can buy extremely cheap shoes from a sweatshop in another country an…d then sell them to you for $40 or more. This is wrong on many levels. (MORE)
Because people want alot of money and the employees would rather work in a sweatshop than not have a job at all. And sweatshops are far higher paying than other jobs available to them. See related link below.
A working environment with very difficult or dangerous conditions,usually where the workers have few rights or ways to address theirsituation. This can include exposure to harmful materials,hazardous situations, extreme temperatures, or abuse fromemployers. Sweatshop workers are often forced to work… long hoursfor little or no pay, regardless of any laws mandating overtime payor a minimum wage. Child labor laws may also be violated. (MORE)
Nike. Gap Nike and Gap are considered among the best in the business for staying on top of their supply chain and fixing any human rights abuses immediately. Several brands from Kohls, Macys and Sears. Including Alfani are made under horrific conditions in Guatemala. Don't stop buying the clot…hing. Instead, contact the stores and let them know this is an issue for you. Shutting down the factory leaves poor women out of work. (MORE)
Well Someone who owns the shop and then the chuwumbawumba who comes in and scoffs the whole lot
Harsh places where people are manipulated and treated badly for low wages. They usually work because they are poor or are struggling. Most sweatshops are in Vietnam, China, Indonesia and Mexico. People who work in sweatshops in Mexico get and average of $3 a day! By Caitlyn Kavanagh :)
wherever a company sees opportunity to take advantage of people who lack the knowledge and resources to stand up for themselves
it is when you sweat so much that people have to hold a bucket under neith your arm
sweat shops are where people work and don't get a good amount of money, but still they don't say anything about it. There is one located in Chicago and some call it LaGarra they sell different kinds of stuff like clothes, electronics, food, etc.
the workers because it affects them, how much pay the get, how many hours they work. how they get treated etc
If by 'uses' you mean United States corporations/firms who have been known to have vendor relationships/outsourced locations in countries where regulations are lax vs the United States... the short/strict'est answer would be "everyone else". Some take the position 'WHY ELSE would you be there, if n…ot exploiting the regulation gap?' Further problems in this question are due to the complicated logistics of raw materials, products vs. the finalized product Does the product use glass? Well the glass is from China. Honda has assembly facilities in American towns, but they are 'foreign'? In the global economy where the consumer is driven by price sensitivity more so than corporate responsibility will always yield the lowest methods/cost of production, at the sacrifice of all else.

"Sweatshop" is a derogatory term for a workshop or factory where labor and compensation laws are not followed. Workers get paid less than the legal minimum wage, are expected to work overtime without getting paid extra, workers are denied breaks that are required by law, are sometimes abused verball…y or physically by their bosses, and they're generally treated like slaves. (MORE)
Because people are treated horribly and do not have the chance to make a choice. They are paid low wages and unfortunately work under poor conditions. They are bossed about and have to face horrific consequences if they do something wrong. They are only given a very small amount of food.
Erm... by sweaty things? i think.... i have no idealcxzvlk sorry i cant b bothereeds to bkspace my friend bumped me tho!
It depends but they might be good because they can have sales and more options.
basically yes-but everybody seems to look the other way-a famous designer got busted recently and they just slapped his hand
clothes are made in sweatshops and the people who make them are usually exploited and paid very little money hope that helps :)
Any people who need pay and are willing to work for it. Some examples are illegal immigrants and poor people in third world countries.
Mainly large cities in the undeveloped world (or extremely urbanized areas), such as city slums in Asia and the middle east.
in some countries "sweatshops" are legal (i.e. japan/tailand, and most third world countries) however they are not legal in the united states, England and others.
no, but add Julie mason on facebook and she is the one with glasses and is filipino she'll tell you.
depending on the country, usually about 6p a day.. If you are american, then probably around 1/5 of a dollar.
In a report issued in 1994, the United States Government Accountability Office found that there were still thousands of sweatshops in the United States, using a definition of a sweatshop as any "employer that violates more than one federal or state labour law governing minimum wage and overtime,… child labour, industrial homework , occupational safety and health, workers' compensation, or industry registration" . This recent definition eliminates any historical distinction about the role of a middleman or the items produced, and focuses on the legal standards of developed country workplaces. An area of controversy between supporters of outsourcing production to the Third World and the anti-sweatshop movement is whether such standards can or should be applied to the workplaces of the developing world.

They aren't illegal. I own 3 sweatshops that employ Vietnamese toddlers. They're great workers. If you have any I can buy, call 419-734-6571 and ask for Dave. I am an avid KKK member and a member of the BBB.
Sweatshops are in place because it is much cheaper to make whatever goods are made there. Employees are paid much less than those who work in quality factories. The company benefits from cheaper workers and the consumer benefits from cheaper goods.
Most people working in sweatshops are females between ages 9-25, during their teens and early adult life. This is the time period that should be used for education, but instead, is used to support their family.
Because children, women and the elderly are working 12-18 hour days in crowded basements/warehouses with little to no ventilation making the clothes and products that you buy and wear. Previous to being chemically dry cleaned before going to retail, your shirt was probably assembled by small dirty, …sweaty, cracked and bleeding hands that were paid less than half a dollar for a full days worth of work. A couple of dollars a week is enough to keep living so that they can keep working, with no opportunities for education, change, or choice to leave this lifestyle. Everytime you buy ANYTHING- you are VOTING with your money! Make good choices for the people that share the world with you. (MORE)
Sweats shops have many issues like not paying workers a living wedges and abusing them for making mistakes
The cause is some people are very poor and can't get a job. So they either go and work their for a extremely low wage, or get their kids to for them. You think they would quit for the long hours and little pay, but beggars can't be choosers.
Typically poor people working 16 hour shifts 7 days a week earning an average Â£5.00 per week
Higher wages than can be usually received in the communities sweat shops are set up in.
I thinks so, there is sweatshops everywere. I think thayt thye are more fairly paid and I only think that they make fake produce like fake ugg boot and ghd's and stuff like that.
To exploit people, and to get as much profit, while spending as little as possible to pay the laborers. Because it's still legal in much of the world, and if people can legally exploit other people in sweatshops and make money off of them, many individuals will do so, because they love money more th…an people, and are unwilling to pay their a fair day's pay for a fair day's work.

There really is nothing wrong with sweat shops. People say that it is a crime to pay someone $10.00 a day to work in a foreign country, however, over there it is a good job. They may want to get paid more, but that's just the way it is. What people really care about is that the products that are bei…ng made are being marked up significantly and the person who owns the sweat shop is screwing over the American public by charging so much for something that was really cheap to make. It's human nature to be greedy and to screw over someone that you don't know. People say that they feel like it is slavery, and act like they care, but really only cares that they got screwed over on those new pairs of Adidas shoes they just purchased. Just like blood diamonds. Would you want to pay $5000 for a blood free diamond, or $1300 for a good old blood diamond? Give one to your woman and tell her that you had to go with a cheaper blood free diamond. She really doesn't want to hear about it or talk about it but she will certainly want the big one. We just won't talk about where it came from. Especially if she is white. Yes, I'm white too, so I know them quite well. (MORE)
The term "sweatshop" is used to indicate a factory where people do too much work for too little pay, so no, they are not ethical.

Singapore has a high standard of living, so there is probably nosweatshops in Singapore. Personally, as a local I have also neverheard of the existence of sweatshops here. However, it is notguaranteed that there are exactly no sweatshops in Singapore.
