President-elect Donald Trump should discontinue his outsourced clothing line for good.
His political platform basis has been to create US jobs and end to outsourcing; while pieces of his own clothing line is made in Honduras, China, Bangladesh, Indonesia, and Mexico.
Average wages for a factory worker in each country:
Honduras: $1.30 per hour
China: $1.36 per hour
Bangladesh: 33 cents per hour
Indonesia: 50 cents per hour
Mexico: $2.10 per hour
Items from Donald J. Trump Signature brand include:
Dress shirt made in Bangladesh: $16.95
Pinstripe suite made in Indonesia: $166.88
Dollar-shaped tie clip in China: $24
Scott Nova, the Executive Director of Worker Rights Consortium explains that Bangladesh “has the lowest wages and the worst and most unsafe working conditions of any major apparel exporting country”.
Trump profits from some of the cheapest labor in the world.
Put an end to the hypocrisy: tell President-Elect Donald Trump to end his clothing line!
President-elect Donald Trump,
You have openly spoke against outsourcing stating, “Ladies and gentlemen, it is time to declare our economic independence once again." Yet you profit from some of the cheapest labor all over the world.
We strongly urge you to stop the hypocrisy and discontinue your outsourced clothing line.
