DC Students aim to improve VTech Sweatshop Conditions

Posted by Peter MUIR

The DC Labour Rights Group wants to help improve conditions for all sweatshop workers. They want to promote decent working conditions and living environments and want managers and guards to treat workers as human beings and stop physical and verbal abuse. They believe that all workers deserve to be treated with respect, dignity and above all, with humanity.

The group have recently been focusing their efforts on spreading awareness about the working conditions at the V-Tech sweatshop in China.  For more information about this issue please check out this article from the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights.  The group is hoping that you have your say and sign a petition they have created – http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/vtech-sweatshop/

Also please check out their Facebook page. The group is planning to meet VTech soon and need you support!
