After starting this blog, I now cringe when I hear people talking about the “great deal” someone got on their clothes. Paying $20 for a dress? Someone paid the price, if it was not you, chances are, it was the woman (or possibly man) who made it.
Interested in what it is like to work in a sweatshop? A couple of fashion bloggers took the plunge and went to work in a sweat shop. A reality tv show covered their experience. The is quite critical of H&M, which has been one of the better companies with information about where and how their clothes are made.
