Sweat Shops
How people are treated in the factories
Sweat shop workers are treated very badly in the sweat shops, because if they miss a day their bosses cut a three day working payment. It's very sad to see these family's in pain because when it's a holiday they can't miss work, the bosses don't even pay the workers the full amount they need and the amount the workers get are not even enough for them to live on. The parents can't even afford to pay for their children to go to school because they don't get payed a lot. The bosses also abuse the workers with words, because if their late or don't do something right then the bosses embarrasses them in front of everyone and the workers say it's unfair. The whole point is their treated with disrespect, the workers said"we want to be treated like everyone one else and it's not fair we have to live this way."
