Dear Consumer,

Hundreds of thousands of Chinese employees work under immoral working conditions just to make your pretty Ariel dolls and plastic pirate swords. 

Factories make their employees work ungodly hours 18 hours, yet make half the national average wage for China ($1.32USD/hour). These workers are required to live in unsanitary dorm rooms. Often overcrowded with no hot water and poor quality meals. On top of that, workers are not provided the legally required safety training, which puts their lives at risk with the machines and exposure to harmful chemicals.

It is ridiculous people around the world in this century are still being abused for the sake of millions of dollars. Let me remind you, these millions of dollars made from the profit Disney makes could easily pay a healthy wage for these workers in China.

Why does Disney use sweatshops? Utilizing cheap labor allows massive companies to assume much larger profits than deserved. The employees of sweatshops are so poor, so desperate, that they will work for any amount of money; large corporations take advantage of this.

Boycotting sweatshop made goods means these companies would increase the prices of these products because they will have to increase the wages and improve the working conditions in their factories. Since the labor costs will rise, the products will be more expensive; however, they would overall be morally just and gain rights for Chinese laborers. 

Are you, like thousands of others who have joined, going to boycott Disney goods and services? Add your name if you are willing to opt for more sustainable products for the greater good of society.
