Factory workers locked in on shifts

See on Scoop.itThe Global Village

Workers making clothes for the supermarket Lidl in Bangladesh have been secretly filmed being forced to work 19-hour shifts.

Kevin Friery‘s insight:

We can make a difference, you know.  It is not easy – there are lots of levers to pull.  Companies like http://www.whomadeyourpants.co.uk are already bringing us alternatives but this is a global issue with a need for a global approach.  The ‘drive to the bottom’ on prices everywhere cannot co-exist with ethical living – something needs to give.  We need to re-engage with the difference between ‘price’ and value.
