The wonderful world of capitalism. Keep them hungry and poor so they don't have enough strength to fight back.

I think that the CEO's from the likes of Nike should work in sweatshops. See how it fucking feels to live worse than an animal for a change.

Sweatshops are natural. Firms look to outsource labour to the cheapest sources, and as standards of living rises, the labour is then outsourced to even cheaper labour. You know, in China people are complaining now of jobs being outsourced to Bangladesh. In 10-20 years, you will hear lots of stories of jobs being outsourced to Africa, mark my words. If you don't believe that sweatshops eventually lifts people out of poverty, then read this: http://www.businessinsider.com/china-overtakes-us-as-worlds-largest-economy-2014-10 China is now larger than the USA economically. And to think, in the 70's, China was considered a third world country . . . In a relatively short period of time hundreds of millions, were lifted out of poverty, one part due to sweatshops.
