What are conditions like in these sweatshops?

These children 11 or sometimes younger are routinely beaten and slapped sometimes falling from exhaustion forced to work 12-14 hours a day sometimes over night 7days a week. For just wages of 61/2 s

cents a hour. That's not even enough to live on. The wages are so low that some children wake up at 5:00am just to brush there teeth with there finger and asks from a fire cause they don't have enough to buy tooth paste and tooth brush! Workers say if they could at least make 36 cents a hour they could come out of misery into poverty which means a at least decent life.Child workers often are slapped around because they fall behind in there work production or take to long in the bathroom which is filthy lacking toilet paper,soap,towels.

Considering that we can't really do anything yes and no. I can't really doing anything about it so it's leading me to the no side. These brands could at least try something else which concerns me
