Workers at Nike’s sweatshops in Vietnam on strike

According to this BBC article:

More than 20,000 workers at a factory in Vietnam that makes shoes for Nike have gone on strike demanding higher pay to cope with rising inflation.

Notice how the cowards at the BBC call it a factory.

You can show solidarity with underpaid workers in Vietnam by refusing to by Nike’s overrated crap. The free-market ideas that are commonly referred to as globalization are killing local shoe industries throughout the developing world, as they cannot compete with cheap imports. If you would buy from one of these small shoe manufacturers instead of a big corporate giant, you’re helping somebody somewhere to earn a living instead of helping the rich get even richer.
