|Walmart Sweatshops Around the Globe
I am henceforth never shopping at Walmart ever again. I encourage you to do the same.
Sure, its cheap, but at what cost to the rest of the world?
Walmart uses Sweatshop (slave) labour in China, Taiwan, Honduras, Mexico, Bangladesh, India and many other countries. The workers are usually women, sometimes even children. They are beaten, forced to work 7 days a week and make everything from toys to clothes to computer products.
90% of Walmart's products are made in sweatshops in China run by the local Chinese mafia and bogus subsidiary companies that Walmart uses to create cheap knock-offs of Levis and other brand-name products (Levis is currently suing Walmart for brand-name infringement). They beat, intimidate, kill and extort their workers, forcing them into what is effectively slave labour.
The average Walmart factory worker in China makes $3 US/day, works 7 days a week, is beaten/raped if they try not to work, and killed if they try to start an union.
