Trendy clothes are cheaper than ever. That sounds great for the people who buy them, but it's horrible for the people who make them. Connect with Last Week Tonight online...

none of the food he showed was cheap...

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.

Alright, so what the solution for us as consumers? Please don't give a snarky remark. Is there a resource that can help people of all income brackets shop more ethically ?

It as I said before, clothing is the 2nd best item to sell in our world, only beaten by software. Clothing is cheap labour, cheap materials, huuuge profits. Also rip denmark prices in cloths....Man Europe must be a gold mine for them.

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 (13 дней 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.

For some reason most clothes sold seems to be for woman.
Louis MacLeod (13 дней назад)
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.

There are more reports. Much more.

Uh, 64 items? I think I buy 1 pair of pants and 3 shirts a year on average. And by average, I mean I buy 4 pairs of pants, and 4 years later, I buy 4 pairs of pants. What the hell are people doing with all these clothes?

Gee. I wonder why cheap clothing would continue to be incredibly popular in a country where wage inequality is still an enormous issue, the current administration is 100% vested in keeping the rich that way and under-educating and maintaining the socioeconomic status of everyone beneath, and (depending on where you live) you can work two full time jobs and barely make rent? Administration comment only applies post creation of this video, but seriously.... a not insignificant per cent of the people who buy these clothes do so because it is the cheapest option. While they aren't working in a sweatshop at 14, they aren't exactly living the grand life, they're doing what they can to keep themselves and their kids clothed. When do we get a LastWeekTonight about the foodservice industry? Even if you're making food for the 1% you're making minimum wage or barely above. Telling the people who can afford to buy other clothing what dicks they're being isn't going to solve the problem.

Viola Rose (17 дней назад)
Well, at least if the factories moved back to this side of the border and paid union rates to their unskilled workers people would be able to afford to buy the clothes they were producing. Though what would the sweatshop workers do?

wow this doesn't even touch on how horrible this is for the environment. donate your clothes rather than throw it away and buy from a local or online thrift store! also cheap but doesn't increase the demand from sweat shops.
stephanie santos (19 дней назад)
hey! there's an app called depop you can buy vintage/worn clothes on! you could also sell your own clothes. having less clothes really helps youbuy less.

The young children working in those factories depend on those jobs to feed themselves and their families. It's a whole other issue, taking the jobs from them might result in their possible death from starvation it's so dreadful! These companies use these poor souls to their advantage because they get to keep the labor cheap and nobody complains. Ughhh I've been ordering clothes made in Turkey recently and I feel really good about myself because Turkey is a flourishing country and child labor should be nearly extinct there.
