Decrease number of stores in the GTA selling products created in sweatshops

This petition had 86 supporters

In developing countries, workers manufacture goods in terrible conditions, often in enclosed spaces with poor air quality and extreme heat. On top of this, workers are often not even paid enough to feed themselves, let alone their families. Children are forced to work in order to stay alive and help their families - they cannot break away from this cycle unless REAL change is made. Companies that use sweatshops in developing countries to manufacture their goods will not make this change, as it will cost them substantially more to produce their goods in humane conditions. Our goal is to create awareness on this issue and have the Canadian government see that people care where they buy their products from. This will encourage the government to make change and decrease the number of stores in the GTA that create their products in sweatshops, and instead encourage those that do not use sweatshops to produce goods to open more stores in the area.
