The Clean Clothes Campaign is a worldwide movement that aims to improve the wages and conditions of sweatshop workers. This is the story of their struggle. Large retailers such as Tesco, Walmart and Carrefour lure shoppers in with prices that seem too good to be true. This book shows that they're too good to be fair. All along the industry's supply chain, workers, often children, are exploited through poverty wages, unpaid overtime and harsh anti-union measures. The campaign urges those in charge of the garment industry's supply lines to protect their workers and treat them fairly. This dynamic account of direct engagement by concerned consumers is a must read for those that see globalisation differently and want their shopping choices to support the most vulnerable people involved in the clothing industry.

Creating conditions for fair labor in the global economy is the greatest moral challenge of our times. In documenting the history of our best efforts so far, Clean Clothes is an indispensable and sure-footed guide to a sweat-free future. -- Andrew Ross, author of Low Pay, High Profile and Nice Work If You Can Get It Those of us who wear 'sweaters' might be interested to know that the word lies in the history of industrial organization, as this masterful account makes clear. And garments -a 'footloose' industry or a 'footprint' for development ? There is much insight on development trajectories to be gleaned from this book. -- Duncan Campbell, Director, Department of Economics and Labour Market Analysis, International Labour Organisation, United Nations
