Nike factories in Vietnam
During my research I found two links to an interesting article about the poor work conditions in Vietnam. On international women’s day 56 women showed up with the wrong footwear. They got punished had to work in the hot sun and several of them fainted. Also a dozen of them collapsed while working. A man named Thuyen Nguyen investigated the factory and found out the workers had been abused sexually and verbally. Which is not okay in a work environment. Many of them were hungry and had poor living conditions with low pay. Also there is a nike boot camp were they also had low pay and bad living conditions. They were mostly young women about 90% of them were. There ages were between 15-28 which is very sad. They have kids my age working and starving. They were barely living and lower wages than I’ve ever seen. The wages was way below minimum wage and they made millions maybe even billions from this. If they are making that much they should be able to at least pay there worker’s minimum wage. They could barely afford food. Nike responded by hiring a former United Nations worker and he had lots of work to do. He hired to oversee the working conditions . In conclusion nike labor problems is still a big problem and these articles just brought light to the problem.
