Liberal feminist Group has “This is what a feminist looks like” merchandise made in sweatshops where women make $1 an hour

So, slave labor is chic these days? Typical liberals get caught up in catchy, warm and fuzzy statements, co-mingled with fashion and they are good to go. Very similar to the #BringOurGirlsBack campaign on Twitter. Very faddy, utterly useless and deeply, deeply stupid. I’ll tell you what a real feminist looks like… one who believes everyone should be free and that sweatshops should not be allowed. But hey… looks great on those liberal Progressives, huh? You betcha!

From The Blaze:

They may be meant to show the world “What a Feminist Looks Like,” but people might want to be less concerned with who’s wearing the in vogue shirts and more focused on the women making them.

The “This Is What a Feminist Looks Like” T-shirt gained widespread attention last week after British politicians and celebrities started donning the tops.

But as the British Daily Mail reported, it turns out the pricy garments come from a seemingly un-feminist environment: a sweatshop on the island of Mauritius where women making the shirts sleep 16 to a room and earn roughly $1 per hour.

The shirts are a product of fashion retailer Whistles, which sells the shirts for £45 (roughly $72) each.

According to the Daily Mail, the factory where the shirts are produced is owned by Compagnie Mauricienne de Textile, which pays workers 6,000 rupees, or less than $200, per month — about 1/4 of the Mauritius’ average wage.

“The workers in this factory are treated very poorly and the fact that politicians in England are making a statement using these sweatshop T-shirts is appalling,” said Fayzal Ally Beegun, president of the International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers Union.

The Left never lets a little nuisance like slavery get in the way of a good fashion craze. After all, it’s all about them. These vain, vapid morons are an embarrassment to those that truly do value the rights of women. You pay a whopping $72 for a shirt you think makes you look cool, when in fact, not only is it lame, it funds slave labor in third world hellholes. Well done.
