Transcript of Nike
Nike is a company that produces all different kinds of sporting equipment and clothing. Unfortunately these products are manufactured in sweatshops where workers are physically and verbally abused not to mention their wages are extremely low for the hard labor that they are forced to do for survival.
Where they are made
The majority of Nike's products are produced in Asia, primarily in China, Indonesia and recently Vietnam. These are the three primary countries due to the fact that they contain more factories. For example, China consists of 166 factories where as the USA only consist of 66 factories. This particular merchandise can also be found being manufactured in: Canada, the U.K, USA, South Africa just to name a few.
Nike doesn't run the factories nor do they help manufacture the products within them. However Nike does dictate what the design and materials are used for the products being created; they also decide what price the buyers have to pay for the merchandise.
What nike actually does
But no these workers are getting these rights violated working long hours, getting US$1.60 per eight hours and getting constantly physically and verbally abused.
What Nike factories are like and what they do!
Nike tries to avoid the responsibility for the factories conditions and treatment by making excuses, such as they were 'just the buyer.'
this excuse is unacceptable!
This may not be the only company in the wrong but Nike is such a profitable company from having such immensely high priced merchandise they can afford to make changes and can defiantly afford to double the workers wages with no need to increase the retail price.
The treatment of sweatshop workers is appalling; the way they are treated breaks several human right laws.
THEY BREAK THE FOLLOWING LAWS:
ARTICLE 4, NO SLAVERY
ARTICLE 5, NO TORTURE
ARTICLE 23 EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO WORK IN GOOD CONDITIONS AND HAVE THE RIGHT TO EARN EQUAL PAY LIKE EVERYONE ELSE
AND ARTICLE 24, EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO REST, RECEIVE REASONABLE WORKING HOURS AND HAVE HOLIDAYS OR WORK HOLIDAYS WITH EXTRA PAY
There is corporal punishment and fining for reasons such as: talking, being pregnant or being older than 25.
