Should this young women and thousands like her be paid a ‘living wage’ for making our favourite branded sportwear?
Could Nike, Puma and Adidas do more to end the labour abuses that stain their reputations?

These firms can talk all they like about setting standards and factory inspections but they aren't paying a ‘living wage’. If they did and threatened not to put new work into places that ban trade unions, they could market their products as ‘no sweat goods’.

Would you as a consumer be prepard to pay an extra 30p on a pair of trainers to provide a living wage for sweatshop workers?
