I'm sorry, but that human cost is worth for countries like bangladesh, india, nepal due to our poor financial condition.

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.

Oliver not only a great speaker but a great research team he needs to bring them out so they can receive accolades for their part...🎆🎇🌠👍👍👏👏👏 that's for the research team that exposes the greedy ass fat lazy ugly people and I can say that because I am not materialistic in any form and I can't stand people who go to all-you-can-eat places pile their plate and leave half on there and go get a new plate to leave more on there and then get another plate.. if you don't know if you're going to like it then just get a little bit what the fuck is wrong with that you don't like it then you don't waste a lot stop going back for more when you know you're fucking full and when I said fat greedy ugly people I mean Americans not all but plenty

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.

What's he correct answer though? If these kids weren't working they'd be starving. Boycotting cheap clothes would at worst close these factories, a victory according to this video, and hundreds of starving families as a result. It makes no sense. We can't be the ones responsible for restructuring the inherent problems making these factories the only viable way for these families to feed themselves.

All these outlets and coverage stories are forgetting one important factor here, "asking the workers why they're there" lets do the unthinkable here ladies and gentlemen and presume that these labourers are not complete idiotic peasants, and that they at least have some basic understanding of currency & salaries. because i assure you 90% of them would say "i need the money and this is the highest paying work i can find" now ask yourself, how much of that problem is our fault vs the problem of those citizens own nation and governance?. has anyone stopped to consider that these people are doing for themselves the most economically viable option? if you remove this labour from them then you're gonna have to replace it with something else. or what? you're just going to leave them completely fucked? because that'd be the harsh reality of it. but hey leaving poor people completely fucked is perfectly fine as long as it doesn't involve appearing in our news papers or is blasted on our TV's so we can cry outrage at it.

It's really important to acknowledge the fact that there are such gross workers rights violations, but at the same time, sweatshop labor is an inevitable by-product of a nation developing. The US went through this stage as well with our mistreatment of factory workers. These are jobs that, as odd as it may seem with the low wages, help people move out of poverty and into better opportunities. If anything, the bigger issue is the second-hand clothing industry in developing nations in Africa. Clothes that do not get sold by major companies like Goodwill and Salvation Army get sent to those nations and are bought in bulk, very cheap, by vendors. This market has killed any possible textile industry to develop in those countries. As a result, this has left people poor and in a worse condition than those in a nation like Bangladesh, who has actually seen significant economic development within the past few years with more and more people moving out of absolute poverty. Sweatshops are terrible, but it's also an issue with no clear or easy answer and I wish this was explored more in this piece. If companies, all at once, move their factories back to the US, global economies will unfortunately pay. Not only will millions of people lose jobs that they badly need and are often better alternatives to farming, an industry that is becoming less profitable and more difficult every day, but prices in the US will raise tremendously to compensate for the higher wages and costs associated with running a factory up to code. That isn't to say nothing can be done about sweatshop labor, as the dangerous working conditions and child labor are inexcusable, it's just that we can't wave a magic wand to make it all go away.

WALMART Walmart started out in Reynolds, Arkansas in 1962 selling cut rate merchandise (crap that people didn't need)... but Wally Mart knew America needed to spend money as by that time spending money with God emblazoned on it had become a form of prayer. Wally Mart realized he could make money simply by advertising crap as the 'lowest possible price'... which is what he was selling. What brought Walmart to full throttle? Women's panties! Ten for a dollar! And in an environment-- the Bible Belt-- where a woman could still get her face slapped for saying panties in public. Now people could talk about sex by talking about cheap panties! Women had panty modeling parties and men who wore panties went insane. Due to Walmart offering cheap panties to sexually inhibited puritan America it ushered in the sexual revolution, the women's movement and the gay rights movement. WALFART TOOK OUT LIFE INSURANCE POLICIES ON IT'S EMPLOYEES, DIDN'T TELL THEM AND MADE THEMSELVES THE BENEFICIARY... THEN WORKED THEM TO DEATH! Wal-Mart greedy Walton family exposed + underground bunker! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcCfkKziWa8 Alice Walton daughter of Sam Walton founder of Walmart was arrested for driving drunk. She was driving home from her 62nd birthday party in Weatherford, Texas with a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit. She said to the cop: "Do U know who I am, Bitch?" The cop didn't know she was the 21rst richest person in the world or the 10th in the USA. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcut31g6suE

As a very poor person: Not being able to afford "ethically-sourced" clothing is not a pass for regularly buying fast fashion. If you care about the issue, you'll take care of the clothes you have instead of buying new ones. Use a local seamstress when it's time to replace them (many years later). Also, fast fashion is not weak in construction; we're just less careful with "disposable" items. If you care about your looks and want to mix up your fashion regularly, spend a few minutes daily learning how to make your own clothes & apply that knowledge as desired. The clothes we wear are extremely easy to make (far simpler than what was worn back when everyone made their own). The supplies to do so are cheap (second-hand) and will last for generations to come. No excuses.
Joseph Ko (3 месяца назад)
An opinion: the issues presented are definitely a problem, but the way they are presented in this show feels disconnected to reality. Not everyone buying fast fashion is blowing through a new wardrobe several times a year. Many (not all) people cannot afford to buy 100% "ethically-sourced/made/distributed" clothing. I'm guessing if someone had the choice to buy five $10-shirts versus one $50-shirt of "marginally comparable" quality, MOST non-wealthy Americans would opt for the former. Also, I was not feeling the cheap food joke at the end. I'm not even going to get into issues with food (and yes, I know there are many), but am I the only who felt like those food items weren't even that cheap? Once again, a disconnect between reality of many people just trying to get by and an idealistic world where everyone in America can buy $50 t-shirts and organic-non-GMO-locally-sourced $20 meals. Of course, this is just the consumer side I'm talking about in our present economy. I'm not absolving the multi-billion dollar companies from anything. I just think the angle of this show is creeping dangerously close to a moral condescension upon working-class Americans just trying to make a decent living within their means.

New, men's clothes are NOT cheap to me. I, (like many poor people in the US) shop at thrift stores....and I'm still not impressed with the cheapness. thrift stores actually destroy many donations and only put the most profitable items on the sales floor. Also every year there are less thrift stores and flea markets in S.E. Virginia. Maybe you should inform people about that next, Jon/ Posh Oliver Twist?

In response to the point brought up about 'if we all remove sweatshops, their economy crashes' is this: sweatshops are not the savior, by any means, to an already impoverished economy. There have already been numerous studies and investigative reports that conclude many workers are not happy about these jobs, or are actively trying to get out of them. Without them, most of these people would be farmers, and because of the price-corrupting of their own agriculture, they are left not making enough there. But at least they don't go hungry. Many of these workers, believe it or not, are actively recruited, enslaved, indebted, etc. with promises of abundant wages, and then ensnared in horrible 12-14 hr work hours.
