Clean Clothes: A Global Movement to End Sweatshops

by Liesbeth Sluiter
£22.99   paperback  Pluto Press (2009)

Clean Clothes: A Global Movement to End Sweatshops by Liesbeth Sluiter This book tells the inspiring story of the Clean Clothes Campaign, the worldwide movement determined the improve the wages and working conditions of sweatshop workers in the clothing industry.
 
Large retailers such as Tesco, Wal-Mart and Careefour lure shoppers in with prices that seem too good to be true. This book reveals who foots the bill. It describes the realities of the industry supply chain where workers - adults and children - are exploited through poverty wages, forced overtime and harsh anti-union measures.
 
But sweatshop exploitation doesn't go unchallenged. While workers struggle for a better life, the Clean Clothes Campaign supports them by organising consumers, lobbying governments and bringing pressure on those in charge of the garment industry. Its amalgum of global networking, creative campaigning and fact-based analysis proves to be powerful and convincing. This book shows that it is urgent as well as possible to clean up the clothing industry and make fashion fair.
