Everybody In Denial

“Many of the zone factories are run according to iron-fist rules that systematically break Philippine labour law. Some employers, for instance, keep bathrooms padlocked except during two fifteen-minute breaks, during which time all the workers have to sign in and out so management can keep track of their non-productive time. Seamstresses at a factory sewing garments for the Gap, Guess and Old Navy told me that they sometimes have to resort to urinating in plastic bags under their machines [my italics].”

What the FUCK!?!? Is this the world we live in!? Is this what we’ve chosen?! I hope everyone’s new fleece or jeans were worth it. Damn it!

I feel sick.
