Life in a Walmart sweatshop

You contribute to this when you shop there.

"In China, factory workers live in dorms owned by Walmart - workers pay rent and utilities. If they move out of the dorms to live in a place not connected to Walmart, they still have to pay rent for the dorms. Workers work in factories with poor ventilation. They are told to lie to inspectors about how many days they work: six, when they really work seven days a week. If you don't lie, you will get fired. All of this to make less than $3 a day. In Bangladesh, women in Walmart factories work 14 hours days, 7 days a week and only make up to 17 cents a day."
