Debunking the "But sweatshop workers are better off working for 1 dollar a day than otherwise" argument

We've all heard this argument before, we can't force Nike to pay decent wages to people in third world countries because otherwise they would leave, and in turn instead of making pennies per day, those workers will be jobless. It's such a terrible argument, but I'm having a hard time debunking it, anyone care to help ?

commodity fetishism, sweatshops and global working conditions under modern capitalism

so there's a concept in Capital called Commodity Fetishism that explains how under capitalism, our social relations have become less and less defined as being between people and more between things. For every commodity which we buy or exchange, unless it's directly we have no idea where it was made and by whom. We may be able to know what company sells a batch of pencils, but not the name of the person who spent their day in a factory making them or the driver who transported them to a retailer.

Why I feel this is important to bring up is because with the advent of free trade, many jobs have been shipped overseas into countries that lack better protections and conditions for workers, leading to the rise of Sweatshops and child labor that we think faded away here in the states but are commonly employed by companies all over. While there has been progress recently, commodity fetishism makes it very difficult to know for sure if the products you buy in a store were made in humane conditions by workers in overseas countries being treated fairly or not.

My question here is as of 2020/2021, how common is it for the products you buy ranging from clothes to coffee and computers to be made with things like child labor, forced labor, sweatshops or in other circumstances we generally consider to be inhumane? are all the chinese factories we buy so much stuff from possess horrid conditions or have major companies found more "humane" ways to manufacture their products? Because while we all know how big tech companies build their fortunes off of Cobalt mined with Congolese child labor (and only pulled off of it after lots of outrage and pressure from lawsuits and lawmakers), I feel we need to properly lay out how common it is for major companies to manufacture their products in horrid conditions as of now and whether or not sweatshop-type arrangements are still the go-to for most products on the market right now.

Why do socialist states such as China and Vietnam allow sweatshops run by imperialist corporations to operate within their borders?

For example Foxconn infamously have suicide nets at the base of their buildings, and own a self contained corporation town in China.

This isn’t a gotcha, I’m trying to learn more about the various socialist states but haven’t seen anyone bring up these issues before, so I thought I’d ask

What will happen to sweatshop workers when fast fashion goes out?

So this has been on my mind for hours and I can’t find a lot of sources that help on this topic.

What will happen to all of the sweatshop workers if fast fashion brands go out of businesses? Will they be layed off or will they actually get fair wages?

Because right now the boycott isn’t really bringing attention to the want for change directly to fast fashion companies and CEOs, instead it’s just slowing them down and losing them money (which is good). But it also means even less money for factory workers AND retail workers here in our malls, because even though conditions are horrendous and wages are small as they are... it’s still money that they can use, save and send to their families.

Also where are the people fighting for better conditions for the people who make our electronics? I don’t see anyone really protesting or boycotting phone or toy manufacturers, just clothing. But that’s for another day.

So again.. what will happen to all of the factory workers if fast fashion goes under? I’m not saying we shouldn’t buy ethical because we 100% should but shouldn’t our practices also extend to push these companies and countries to be better?

Because I think that would be more beneficial in the long run if companies wake up and change instead of just closing it’s doors, because the fact is, is that new fast fashion brands will just keep popping up if something deeper doesn’t change. But I could be wrong... What do you guys think? πŸ€”

I work in a sweatshop

I've made a plan to quit work and look for a real job full time. Wait till I have three months wages saved up and quit. The problem is I have a broken back.

My employer is a sweatshop in Northern Indiana making wire-harnesses. Once decided was the lowest paid employer in the county, including McDonalds and Wal-Mart. I'm a supervisor there, but if you watched me all day, you wouldn't know it. I run ALL of the production in the cell I "lead." The supervisor title is what I call a weasel promotion. The kind of promotion a weaselly person would give, a title, all responsibilities but no authority.

We've been perpetually behind since the guy who started the company retired. The people running it are running it into the ground, and I think it's intentional. They do the dumbest things like take orders that are to go out when we're supposed to be off. They also move stuff around the schedule without updating it so we end up late on orders. My boss was promoted to her position straight from production not because of her skill and experience but because she would be easy to control. This was her first job after a 25 year stint in prison, and within a year she was already manager.

We are perpetually behind, the company blames the workers of course. We talk too much so we are not allowed to speak a word to each other on the floor. If you are caught talking, you are written up. Since we're behind and it's our fault, they've taken away things like the Christmas bonus, the quarterly raises so now it's 25 cents once a year but you have to be absolutely perfect to get it, and awards for working hard that would be given out during monthly meetings. Because of us being behind, I've been doing 12hr a day, 7 days a week shifts since the middle of November. Regular overtime started in September, 10 hours 5 days a week. This is going to be going on till July at the soonest.

We used to have a radio, but they took it away after a co-worker asked why the volume changes day to day.

If we are caught with our phone on the premises, it's taken away, even if we're using it on break. Can't keep phones in our cars because people have had their cars broken into several times.

All the work I've been doing has prompted me to demand raises. I want to make as much as the other supervisors, but according to my boss the supervisors don't make as much as I think. I dunno, they are salary and exempt from overtime. In the state of Indiana, you have to make more than $681 salary to be

I am looking for sweatshop free undershirts!

I've been looking for white short and long sleeve undershirts to wear under my scrubs at work. I primarily desire shirts that are sweatshop free and only natural fibers. Chemical free and organic would be great too, but really, though I'm really just looking for brands that treat their labor force like human beings. Some small brands seem interesting but are pretty expensive. It's not necessarily a dealbreaker it's just that I would like to see who is really ethically minded and who are posers. Does anyone have a recommendation to put me in the right direction? I hate that they have to be white because that means they have to be bleached but that's company policy. Thank you for any info!

Question from an American about the minimum wage and sweatshops in Sri Lanka

So I saw online that Beyonce employed factory workers in Sri Lanka who were making as little as $6 USD a day. I know the minimum wage is 10,000 rupees, and the workers were making above that.

My question is - in terms of quality of life, and what you can afford on the minimum wage, is it dramatically different than surviving on the American minimum wage? For reference, as a single person living on the American minimum wage it's almost impossible to find affordable rent (in my state) and everything after rent would be used on gas, food, and your car. The most frugal person could save money, but very little. If you lived in your own place, over half your months earnings would be spent on it, and if you lived with roommates maybe one weeks pay would cover it.

Thank you

J

Working conditions in Chinese sweatshops are notoriously terrible and the pay is low. Is there any feasible ways to improve these conditions/wages?

It seems to me that trade agreements between China and its trading partners have done little to ensure good working conditions and decent wages for sweatshop employees. What polices, if any, could China and its trading partners pursue that might help improve in these areas?
