American Apparel garment workers are the highest paid garments workers in the world. They are paid partially by the amount of pieces they produce and can make as much as $18.50/hour or $36,000 per year."

These products are screened for safety and do not include toxins that cause cancer, hormone disruption, or infertility. You would think these things are banned by the government, but they are not. The European Union has spent the past two decades banning [...]
Some of my suppliers checked out this video, and it is truly shocking. Workers in Bangladesh and across the globe are feeling the squeeze to produce for even less. Of course, since they already don't make a livable wage, the result of this squeeze is tragic. Factories collapse. People starve. The question I have to [...]
