advocateforights Thinking that your iPhone is bought at a reasonable price? That your iPhone comes from ethical origins?
Think again.

According to Business Insider's 2012 report, Your iPhone was Built, In Part, by 13 year olds, Working 16 Hours a Day, 70 cents an Hour.

Foxconn, a company in Shenzhen that employs 430,000 workers do not check the ages of the workers they employ, and the workers can be as young as the age of 12. When there are inspections, the company replaces the younger workers with older ones.

The workers stay in a 12-by-12 cement cube dormitories that fits 15 people.

So next time you decide to buy a new iPhone or iPad, ask yourself how you feel about this.

advocateforights Bangladesh sweatshops fasts facts:

1.In Bangladesh, the average worker’s hourly wage is just US$0.13, which is the lowest in the world and lower than US$1 which the UN deems as the threshold of extreme poverty
2.In Asia, children as young as 5 were found to work from 6 in the morning until 7 at night for less than 20 cents per day.
3.In Bangladesh, 3.5 million workers in 4,825 garment factories produce goods for export to the global market, principally Europe and North America.
4.The Bangladeshi garment industry generates 80% of the country’s total export revenue. However, the wealth generated by this sector has led to few improvements in the lives of garment workers, 85% of whom are women.
5. Many of the workers in Bangladesh earn much less than the minimum wage
6.Most of the Bangladeshi workers face very poor working conditions, having to work 14-16 hours a day, 7days a week
7.The Bangladeshi workers' workplace is also cramped and dangerous.
8. Women suffer most in garment sweatshops in Bangladesh
9. Bangladeshi sleep cramped in small squalid dorms with 10-15 other women. :Photo taken from the Internet of Bangladesh's factory accident in 2013 with reference to globalriskinsights.com and http://www.waronwant.org/sweatshops-bangladesh

advocateforights Sweatshops: Low pay, Long working hours, poor working conditions.
Aided by a manufacturer's or company's goal to save cost and minimise wages and a customer's desire to save money, sweatshops still EXIST in the 21st century in countries ALL OVER the WORLD such as the United States and Vietnam.

Fast facts:
What is happening in the world?

1. A "sweatshop" is defined by the US Department of Labor as a factory that violates 2 or more labor laws.
2.n developing countries, an estimated 168 million children ages 5 to 14 are forced to work.
3.Products that commonly come from sweatshops are garments, cotton, bricks, cocoa, and coffee.
4.Sweatshops have been a factor in the production of goods around the world for centuries, but the globalization of business has led to increasing numbers of major corporations to take advantage of low-cost sweatshop labor in developing countries. :Photo of a garment sweatshop taken from the Internet

r3sist4nt_cu7tur3 You want 15$ wages! Then rather than complain, stand up follow in the footsteps of the rest of the world and fight for your labour laws if that is what you believe it. Waiting for the judicial system is a waste of you time.
