EQ and my opinions

Are Sweatshops ever a good thing?

  • yes, because they reduce poverty
  • no, because they cause 120 deaths a year
  • yes, because they save children from doing more dangerous jobs
  • no, because the conditions are horrible and the kids would get neglected
  • no, because there is forced drug use and abortions, which could cause death

My position on Sweatshops

I personally think that sweatshops are needed to produces the products that the US needs, and they provide payment for low income families. Next sweatshops prevent children from doing other more dangerous jobs. lastly is that sweatshops are the reason why we have what we wear, play, and even eat in the US.
