Nike, Reebok & the Global Sweatshop

Program #BENM001. Recorded in Madison, WI on November 20, 1996.

The sneakers and clothes you are wearing are probably made in the Third World. More and more U.S. manufacturers have closed their domestic plants and shifted their production overseas. Corporate managers claim these moves are necessitated by an increasingly competitive global business environment. How and under what conditions are these goods being made? Who does the work? Who profits?
