Women and the Sweatshop Reality of Supermarket Profits

ActionAid, one of the UK’s best aid organisations, has come out with a new report:

Who Pays: How British Supermarkets Are Keeping Women in Poverty”

Covering nuts, bananas and clothing, the report does a fine job of looking at the chains of exploitation that link British consumers to women workers in the third world. Really top stuff, and a great teaching resource, this.
