Factory working conditions; Poor working conditions have been present for centuries. Conditions were sub-par in several critical areas of Nike's factories overseas & minimal standards needed to be reached for all employees.

Do they have benefits; no, at times nothing was done unless a tragedy occurs to persuade the public to rally for workers rights.

What solutions/alternatives are there to sweatshops?

To have better working conditions & higher wages.

What did you learn?

I learned that working conditions for Nike's sweatshops were very poor and they had very low wages I disagree with the working conditions & the amount they get paid.

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

Yes, because realizing that people go through these poor conditions with low wages to produce products to satisfy other people makes me feel like I'm taking advantage of their hard work.
