Transcript of Vans "Off The Wall"

Vans "Off The Wall"
They produce these shoes in Chinese factories with poor working conditions.

They are supposed to work 40 hours a day with one to two days off and minimum wage but these laws aren't always followed

Money is taken from their wage simply for taking too many bathroom breaks and it's common to have your first two months wage taken as "deposit"
The movie "Fast Times in Ridgemont High" spurred demand for the shoes

On Rankabrand.org they received a rating of "E" (a poor rating) because they make no efforts to reduce their carbon footprint nor is there much information known about the company itself

Product recall in 2001 on 2,400 jackets made by the brand for posing a strangulation risk
