    Labor intimidation is cowardly. Give people a living wage and then they can buy your products. Greed is NOT a virtue.

    It’s reprehensible that on this day and age we still haveob brutality taking vengeance against peaceful demonstrators. These criminals should be imprisoned along with the Ealton family for their heartless practices.

    I had the same problem with the submit button. I’m still not sure if my info went thru.

    Unfortunately, hatred of organized labor has existed for decades. It’s continuously pounded into our heads by the corporate-owned mass media, so the public turns a blind eye to the employment of slave labor and the treatment that comes with the practice. I mean, come on folks, where do you think that shirts for $5.99 come from?!?! Regardless, I’m very happy to read that the WWU has provided a forum from which the victims of slave labor can be heard. Wake up America!

    No es justo que los trabajadores de zona franca en Nicaragua, estemos condenado a 4 años con un salario miserable del 8%. es injusto ya que elaboramos prenda de vestir de grandes marcas tales como Levis, Carhart, adidas, Walmart,Dikies, Magdonal, perry EL, Grey Anatomy etc, que vende su productos a un costo elevado. es hora que estas marcas se pongan la manos en su conciencia y exijan que sus proveedores paguen los justo a sus colaboradores, ya que solo recibimos maltratos, y un salario que solo nos alcanza para medio comer, tenemos metas de producion inalcanzable que los únicos beneficiados son los empresarios xq así no pagan mas del salario mínimo. Todos los trabajadores de zona franca de Nicaragua necesitamos de su gran apoyo, de su solidaridad que esta lucha apena comienza.

    I just watched the Video on Live leak, and I am truly appalled, and I will never shop at walmart again! All this company cares about is it’s share holders! They do do charity in North America, meanwhile they promote and endorse Sweatshop, slave labor, and take advantage of third world Countries citizens all for the mighty dollar.. They cant and will not have garment factories in North America, as they know it would cost too much to make…. I stand by you all, and you all need to UNITE! You should all Walk off the Job, and Picket around the factory.. They can not and will not FIRE you all, as they would tank…. As for the Harsh management, I would follow them home, and picket in front of their homes! I do hope and pray you all get the fair wages, and a union in place to protect yourselves! VIVA LA REVOLUTION!
