A US company creates opportunities for people in struggling countries, and Libs want it ended because it doesn't fit their world view. Did you ever consider that those children work for a better life? Do you think if they didn't have that job they would be playing games and studying computer science? Turns out, unlike your life, many people struggle to survive around the world and every job at every age helps. Your desire for an idealistic childhood, robs the means to buy food, rent, and survival for families around the world. Even though you seem completely unable to accept it Libs, the world is not like the United States; Some people have to work at 14 years old to survive. Working for GAP is a lot better than being a child soldier or starving. Such is life.
The children in these circumstances are the only thing to help their family. Instead of taking their jobs away, how about trying to help them?

Ok, with all that being said, can we re visit minimum wage in America because, the pay we get is directly related to the amount of money we can afford to spend and acting like anyone that can't afford to not buy cheap clothes is an unenlightened jerk that doesn't care about the people being treated badly like this is a little bit elitist. People buy cheap clothes because that's what they can afford but it's not because they feel good about their purchases.

Haha my American friends, don’t be stupid and naive that just companies like H&M, Zara, GAP etc. do this. Companies like Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren and many more in similar price range do exactly same thing in almost identical factories, from almost identical materials. You are just making their profit margins bigger by paying 50$ per tshirt.

Now I'm an Indian. Child labour and poverty are genuine issues here. And still you cannot imagine to be of any worth without being wrapped in those branded fabrics. Here garments are not just fashion statement, they are a representative of your socio-economic status and maybe even your character. And then there is this hollow sense of pride associated with a fucking piece of cloth. It's like the phrase 'born with a silver spoon in one's mouth' should be effectively replaced with 'born with a tag up one's ass'.

big companies like gap, zara, h&m just get suppliers to do their dirty job of exploiting poor people (children included, but also a vast majority of women) so they can say that they didn't know (they do they just don't care)

The supply chain not only in fashion, but in big industry overall, correlates directly with the things we learned about finance industry: securitization, bundling, compounding, off-shoring, laundering, etc.-- all very complicated, convoluted, and corrupt; almost impossible to trace. Regulatory systems become the roadmap for loopholes; we are all hooked into it, knowingly or not. Nothing will change until/unless our values systems are reset to reflect Natural capital (resources) and Human Capital (creativity, labor), and not smoke and mirrors. The planet may just work that out for us in the not too distant future.

Why not make a law: If you, lets say X, are in Nation A and contract to sb., lets say Y, in Nation B, and it is found out, that your contractor (Y) violates laws of Nation A (lets say "child labour laws") ... ... you (X) are actually directly liable; just as if you violated the law(s) yourself. I bet you, all child labour (enforced by Nation A) will suddenly come to an end. Hit them where it hurts - money!

pfwuuuh... clothing is something i really dont think about that often. i own three sets of clothing which are exactly the same and i only buy new clothing if one of those sets is damaged. quite minimalistic, but at least i can be sure they are not made in sweatshops and/or by children.

Let's be honest, the problem is all the spoiled brats (from 5 years old to 95 years old) in the western world who want 50 different sets of clothes each season, but aren't willing to pay for quality. If everyone was willing to buy quality items, these kids parents would earn enough money - so their kids could go to school and their governments could develop the tax base to improve their countries.

I would prefer to ask fashion companies to provide free, onsite schools at their factories with a required 60/40 ratio of female/male students along with funding university scholarships for children of factory workers, especially girls.

The sad thing is those 12 and 14 year old girls probably had to switch to working in the sex trade once they were fired from the Gap factory. I'm actually more concerned about the safety conditions in those factories than the fact adolescents are working alongside their mothers. These families are going to have their children working in some way as soon as possible. The solution is to support programs that educate women and girls of all ages and help them to start their own businesses to achieve real independence.

Yeeeaaahhhh, but did any of you ask WHY these young children are lying about their age to get work? Maybe because they can't eat without those jobs? Now, if the other ones were actual slaves, that's different (although, since they said "virtual slaves" I don't know what that meant, for sure). The shed without any fire extinguisher or fire exit is something else entirely. You'd think they'd WANT to protect the clothes, at least.

I think the issue is more complex than this. I don't think you can hold buyers accountable for the low safety standards set by thr Bangladeshi government and the people who violate them. They do this partly out of negligence but mostly because the whole social structure is so corrupt that they can do nothing but. If they construct buildings they can rarely get the job done professionally - without the contractor stealing money meant for cement. Similarly, the country may not have the infrastructure for education so children work instead. Enforcing safety standards individually will not work at this moment. The accrued cost of making the necessary concessions for one company to the exclusion of all others will kill them in the market while doing nothing to increase their marketability. I think there are social problems in these countries that need to be internally resolved not out of convenience but necessity. There's nothing on the consumer end that can be done other than toppling the economy of a region or even an entire nation. Where you guys can really help is to force companies to unilaterally increase the profit margin of their suppliers and leave it to the country to ensure the employees get a fair share.

A lot of people who say they genuinely can't afford to not buy fast fashion are telling the truth. I had about 2 outfits at a time as a kid, mostly stuff from Ross or charities, and a $15 dollar top from Wet Seal was a luxury to me. But a lot of people are also full of garbage. Your closet overflowing with clothes deeply contradicts your claims that you "just can't afford to spend $150 on a dress!" We are just conditioned to want way, way more clothes than we need or can possibly even wear in a lifetime. Shame on some of us (including myself for many years) for not thinking critically, and shame on brands for exploiting that in the name of profit.

European companies are usually much more responsible on how they manage the supply chain for the simple reason that they are more punished when they misbehave. This has been researched in other sectors aswell. In this sense, I can tell you that Walmart is the paradigm of predatory behavior in how they treat suppliers in third world countries. On the other side, Ikea (especially after the 90s scandals) is the counterexample, as they have reduced from thousands of suppliers to just 200 , so they can actually control them. They establish long-term relationships and help the improving their facilities. In the case of clothing, Inditex (Zara) business model is not based in obtaining the cheapest suppliers, but the fastest, this is why 40% of their production is in Europe (20% of this in Spain and Portugal, close to their HQ). Manufacturing clothes became so cheap, that they prefer to have flexibility and the fast production, so they can adapt to the latest trends. They even ship clothes by flight instead of ships. Therefore their inventory management is top-of-the-art, and they are able to send different clothes to the Tokyo downtown store in comparison to the Tokyo's suburb store, depending of the type of clothes they sell. And sending new clothes to each store twice per week. Gap is the counterexample, they order huge orders of the same clothes to places like Bangladesh and Vietnam. They need to design them 6 months before they arrive, so if the trends change, or the season designed was bad, they have a huge inventory problem, and with no time to adapt. The business model was purely based on obtaining the cheeeeeapest suppliers. They were world #1 retail clothing company some years ago. Now I think their are #4 after Fast Retailing/Uniqlo, H&M (#2) and Inditex/Zara (#1). Some way GAP has been punished. Unfortunately, it never was because of their malpractices. I would say because of their broken business model, they pushed even harder to suppliers, and that's why they had so many recurrent problems. They pretend they care, but then they demand so cheap prices, that only suppliers that cheat can get the order. Funny thing, this is the similar problem Apple has. They demand minimum working conditions, they try to audit, but at the same time, they demand so cheap components that only suppliers that cheat can win the bidding process. It's not a problem of price, but of business culture and the fact that they think that they will not be punished for misbehaving. Please punish companies that misbehave all the time.

Here's what I recommend. Instead of paying $15 for a garment that will last you 1 year from a brand that might support sweatshop labor, buy a $50 garment that will last you 5 years and is certified to be ethical or made in America. Pay the same amount of money but choose quality over quantity and realize that a well made, ethically made garment is more important than a cheap, easy to break, unethically made one.
