The Victoria's Secret workers work up to 14 to 15 hours a day, from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 or 10:00 p.m., seven days a week, receiving on average one day off every three or four months.

What have I learned?

•I've learned that most big businesses are not all they are cracked up to be, and that some of the clothes I wear may have been made at the expense of other people for nearly any money at all

•As A American consumer I am most defiantly more concerned about how the products I buy are made, I don't not want to spend my moment supporting a company that treats the workers like they are less, and does not pay them what they deserve.
