Students Against Sweatshopsby Liza Featherstone
Synopses & Reviews
United Students Against Sweatshops heads a wave of anti-sweatshop organizing that has reached over two hundred American college campuses in the past four years. From the northeast to the southwest, at public and private, large and small universities, their campaigns have wreaked havoc on the corporate campus and ruffled multinational companies whose profits depend on young consumers; they have also led to a more broadly based engagement with issues of social justice and provide a potential model for transnational student/worker solidarity.
This volume is both a record of a new mass campaign, and a tool for the realization of its goals. Written by students, it uses interviews, analysis and graphics to consider issues such as: what is a sweatshop?; and students' role in broader movements against unfair trade and sweated labour.
This short, punchy, yet sharply analytic book, written by USAS activists and an expert journalist, provides a record of a new mass campaign and a tool for the realization of its goals.
This short, punchy book is both a record of a new mass campaign and a tool for the realization of its goals. The students demand one thing: that clothing bearing university logos must be produced under healthy, safe, and fair working conditions.
