What is the name of your company?


Where are the sweatshops located?

These sweatshops are located in Bangladesh.

What products are made in these sweatshops?

These sweatshop make the clothing that is in Kmart.

What are the conditions of workers in these sweatshops?

Every worker worked 70 hours or more every week. Most of these workers didn't get paid for working. The conditions of these sweatshops are horrible. They are not very clean. All the workers don't have much space to work at.

How did the Industrial Revolution affect working conditions today?

The working conditions have improved because of the revolution. The industrial revolution affected todays working conditions because we no longer have children under the age of 16 working and skipping school. Some teens may have jobs but they are after school and on the weekends. Now most people work 48 hours a week and sometimes they might have a little over time but not much.

What solutions/alternatives are there to sweatshops?

The sweatshops could actually turn into a business that makes these items and sell them to companies instead of having these kind of conditions. This way more adults would want to work and the children wouldn't have to work, they could go to school.

What did you learn?

From looking up sweatshops I've learned that more places use sweatshops than I thought. I've also learned that the working conditions are horrible and the children don't get treated very good.

As an American consumer, are you now more concerned with how the products you buy are made? Why or why not?

No because I have always known how/where some of them were made so it doesn't make me more concerned.
