    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.

I would love to know how much the actual fabric of those suspiciously cheap clothes cost. Being someone who sews, fabric is *expensive*, especially when it comes to natural fibers like silk and wool

The one thing this video is missing is where should we buy clothes or from what brands? I genuinely don't know where I would buy non-sweatshop made clothes. I'm thankfully in a solid financial position and would happily pay extra for clothes knowing the labor wasn't exploited.

What is funny is that the food at the end which is supposed to be ridicolously cheap is actually outrageously expensive in most of Europe. I wonder why.

Oh seriouisly?- You are really going to show little kids stitching by hand and try to act like that's a product that would be sold in stores by Gap for another company that's just retarded not to mention he was anti-American nonsense posted by Al Jazeera of all organizations I love your show John Oliver but this one good grief you and your writer should be ashamed of yourselves

One of the frustrating things is if you live in a small town without a lot of options, it isn't so much a matter of two garments hanging side by side and people are choosing the one made with child labor because it's a few dollars cheaper. For a lot of people it's because every single garment in every store in town is made by a company that outsourced it's production to sweatshops, or did that trick where they outsourced it to a better looking supplier that then subcontracted to a sweatshop. Your odds of finding and American made garment in a brick-and-mortar store around here feel like they're about the same as your odds of one day spotting a family of albino giraffes.

I’d love to get an updated version of this for websites like SheIn, Romwe, Zaful, Wish, Fashion Nova and the like. I’m 23 and SO many people my age shop on those websites without having any idea where they’re coming from. If anything, fast fashion has only gotten worse because of those places.

After growing up with my grandmother and wearing what she thought was attractive (it would be stuff she would wear, but looked horrible on a teenager) I lost interest in brand names. I went for comfortable breathable fabrics like cotton. I remember having to wear hot polyester pantsuits to school when the other kids were wearing jeans and tee shirts. When she finally bought me jeans she got ones that were two sizes too big and needed belts to keep them up (the other kids wore jeans that actually fit). My tee shirts were also oversized, like a tent. As a result of her fashion sense people at school there was something wrong with me and I was ostracized. Oh, and when my blue jeans started showing the slightest bit of fading, usually at seams, she would throw them away.

I sew many of my clothes. I plan to improve my skills (with the support of a friend) so I can sew almost everything. It's cheap and lasts long. I cannot stand the main stream fashion. It's boring. I want to like my clothes. Cause they got to reflect my very own personality. Not a persona someone else wants to inflict on me.

ever wonder why those kids would go through the trouble of lying to get into these sweatshops? Their in deep poverty. These sweatshops, although it looks bad to us, is a blessing to these people. They actually earn a wage and can afford to buy food and clothing for themselves and loved ones. Simply getting rid of sweatshops literally hurts everyone. It hurts the poor kids who need to find ways to support their families, and it hurts us because we dont get cheap shit. Perhaps a more comprehensive solution is needed.

Have we considered the economic realities that are pressuring these companies to utilize sweatshops? I doubt the leadership of these companies simply don’t care. I think they are fully aware, but unable to do anything about it. The entire industry is locked into this practice, whether they want to be or not.

Company A sends money and a design to Company B, Company B sends back finished product. its later found out that Company B used child workers. is Company A responsible? No. its not like Company B marketed "highest quality underpaid child employees". Company B is responsible. If i buy food at the store, im not responsible to see if that food was ethically produced. thats the suppliers responsibility.

Working in buying for a retailer, you need to continually audit factories, it is expensive but you cannot allow modern slavery. Scrutinise who you buy goods from.

Can we stop naming kids Elliot, Eliot, Eliott, Elliott, Elyot, Elliotte, Allyot, etc. There is already a damn poem about how to spell the damn name. We don't need Hipster parents looking for "unique" names making it any worse. Keep to Greyson, Easton, Chad, Laite, Mackenzie and all the other silly first names middle class white people name their idiot kids. The double L and single T Descent from Minto and Wolflee, The double T and single L Mark the old race in Stobs that dwell. The single L and single T The Eliots of St Germans be, But double T and double L, Who they are nobody can tell.

My dad's uncle said he had run away from a tailor in Romania who had bought him and had a shop full of children sewing clothes. Great-Uncle Max said he ran away WITH A CARNIVAL when he was 14 because he was tired of being beaten every day to sew buttons on shirts morning noon and night. I only halfway believed that, until I saw his immigration paperwork after he died, stating place of birth: Bucharest, Romania, 1886 and his employer listed was a touring carnival company. He also showed us the way to sew buttons on clothes so they never fall off.

My clothier of choice is the thrift shop, where I can buy gently used, next to new clothes in my size for about $5 a piece. And it keeps kids in Asia from having to make my threads. But as I don't get rid of my clothes until they are turning into ripped up rags, I don't even have to thrift shop often.

Welcome to late-stage capitalism folks! Advocates of this economic system will tell you that it's the best thing humanity can come up with: a system that abuses, exploits, enslaves and destroys human beings all over the planet is the best we can hope for! So, in the long run, we're _all_ screwed! Well, 99% of us anyway. And anyone that causes problems will be dealt with. We're only _humans_ after all. A commodity, a resource - the consumer and the consumed. So don't bother hoping for anything better. There's no profit in that.

I know this aired 4 years ago but this is so dumb. I'm in Montreal and we had massive amounts of clothing factories with kids working until basically the 60'. China used to make clothes and they own American now. This is an economic right of passage. It's also never discussed why kids would lie about their age to work.

The drama is that many people in the world, if they don't buy cheap, they won't be able to buy anything at all. Clothes or not clothes. Besides, many designer clothes which are ridiculously expensive come from the same or similar mills and sweatshops. The price is mostly for the label. And most of the income goes to the few rich people, while the majority stays poor working for them, still not being able to afford ethical products. I'd love to buy ethical too, but I can't. I earn much too little for that. I have a bad conscience about it, but I don't go around blaming people for buying cheap when it's their only option, like people of your kind do.

There are no child protection agency’s in these countries. That Has to be considered. Don’t get me wrong this is absolutely heartbreaking but the sad reality is that these factories may very well be what stands between life and death for people living in unimaginable poverty. so to condemn the factory I understand but in doing so do we condemn the child to a death no worse or no greater than what could be faced in the factory? if these children do not provide for Themselves often times no one will. The other alternative is sex work/slavery, as sex tourism is alive and well in these places.
