The Human Face of the Global Economy

Program #KERC002. Recorded in Seattle, WA on October 03, 1999.

When you go down to your nearest mall and shop for clothes, you are looking for the best price. If you can get a name brand, all the better. Few consider who makes that shirt, sweater or pair of jeans or sneakers. Evidence has mounted in the past few years that much of the clothing and shoes we buy from companies like Nike are made under dreadful sweatshop conditions by poorly paid workers, many of them children, in Third World countries.
