I don't want to start any fires here, I just thought that the Disboard community might like to know about this. I have no ties to the group mentioned in this newsbrief, nor do I consider myself to be a politically-charged person. It is part of a weekly newsletter I get as an employee and I find the facts they state to be very disturbing and thought that I should share them with the rest of you: Loyola to host Bangladesh Workers Tour On Friday, Oct. 4, Loyola will host the Bangladesh Workers Tour that will be in Chicago on a nationwide tour to kick off the Campaign for the Abolition of Child Labor and Sweatshop Abuses. The tour is organized by Loyola alum Charlie Kernaghan, executive director of the National Labor Committee for Worker and Human Rights and a catalyst in the founding of United Students Against Sweatshops. The public is invited to attend the free presentation at 12:30 p.m., in the Mullady Theater, Centennial Forum, LSC. As part of the presentation, two young Bangladesh women will discuss how they sewed Disney garments 15 hours a day, seven days a week, while being paid just 5 cents for every $17.99 shirt they sewed. The workers were beaten, deprived of overtime pay and denied their legal maternity leave and benefits. This event is supported by a contribution from the Arrupe-King Fund and co-sponsored by Loyola Students Against Sweatshops, the Higher Education Student Association, the Center for Faith and Mission, the Center for Ethics and Social Justice, University Ministry and student affairs.
