BOOK DESCRIPTION

Understanding why sweatshops persist means exploring issues of competition, government regulation, immigration, business practices, and racial, ethnic, and gender discrimination. No one publicly endorses the existence of sweatshops, only that they are unfortunate by-products of the economy. When confronted by the occurrence of sweatshops, those involved proclaim, "I'm caught between a rock and a hard place."
