Much has been told about the “Child Labor” and “Sweatshop” issues in newspapers and as well as by human rights activists.  But do we really care? I’m afraid, not. We give a damn about these children who work day and nights. We feel pity if a worker is sweating to produce a Nike T-Shirt for us.

The obvious question may come, Why should we care? Aren’t we paying $60 for that shirt? We are being responsible by purchasing the T-Shirt at a higher price. But who gets the money? It’s time now that we as consumers’ be aware about general human rights that every human being on earth deserves. By the way,  I’m not a feminist or a leftist.  All I’m trying is to aware ourselves that something definite can be done to improve the lives of some poor people who work for our daily commodities.
