Your clothes were made by a child.

When you look down at the clothes you are wearing, can you see the tiny young hands struggling to sew them and meet quota…some of whom are owned by a sweatshop and not being paid?

And does it make you angry?

If you don’t see it, look closer. I’d bet that the clothes you are wearing right now were made in a sweatshop. Just because it is far away doesn’t make it less real. Changing things is our moral responsibility.

(Of course it’s much more complicated than that. Check out the comments on this blog post for a reminder of that.)
