Get the sweatshop mug.
A makeshift factory where men, women, and children slave for twelve hours or more a day for almost no money in crowded, dirty, dangerous conditions under the iron fist of unscrupulous managers just so that rich children get the toys that they want for their birthdays and for Christmas and so that their parents and older siblings get nice clothes and cool gadgets.
Nike, Banana Republic, the Gap, among others, use sweatshops. Sweatshops are everywhere, from Thailand and Honduras to New York and Los Angeles, often virtually enslaving workers.

The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire on March 25, 1911, in New York killed 146 clothing makers, most of them young immigrant women, some of them as young as thirteen. 62 of them jumped nine floors to the street below in their effort to escape the fire. And the patterns are being repeated today around the world.
