It's the state of business today - look for a country that offers cheap labour, set up shop and start the human conveyor belt to churn out products that are now cheaper to produce, sell them at inflated prices and rake in the profits.
Nike did something similar, and got slapped on the wrist for the exploitation of cheap overseas labour. The company said they've stopped this practise, and everyone was happy again. Nike's profits wasn't particularly affected too. A win-win situation.
So imagine my surprise when I spotted this inside a shoe - Made in Hell, Worn in Heaven. Perhaps an allusion to the sweatshops that produced these sneakers for rich consumers?
These sneakers were on sale. RM29 a pair. Yes, that's twenty nine Ringgit a pair. Quite a drastic price cut from the original price tag of RM179.
I sure hope these shoes weren't made in sweatshops. Exploitation of cheap labour will continue. I can yell all I want for better quality of life, but the world isn't listening. What I can do is to focus on MY life and make sure I live it, and not let others live it for me.
