Who makes your clothes?

When you get dressed in the morning, you may not think about how your clothes were made. Many of the clothes that Americans buy are made in other countries, often times by children. These children may work in harsh or unsafe conditions for very little money. These garment workers cannot attend school because their families need the income. So how can American consumers help workers in other countries? Research the practices of your favorite brands. If companies you support aren't paying their workers fair wages or providing safe working conditions, write them a letter asking them to change.
