After going through the documentary ‘Blood, Sweat and T-shirts’ I consider ‘sweatshops’ as a term as unfavourable because as per my understanding it is based on the miserable working conditions that are way too dangerous. It can be seen clearly from the documentary that workers work very long hours in dangerous conditions and in return they are given a very low pay which is equivalent to approximately £3. Many big corporations in countries such as United States of America and United Kingdom are considered as great examples as they use sweatshops labour in countries such as Bangladesh, India, China, Vietnam etc.
so that the corporations can make their products at a lower price. In order to support themselves and their families financially the factory workers are forced to work longer duration of hours in dangerous working conditions. Kant’s ethical theory is based on three aspects which are means vs ends, universal acceptability and goodwill.
In mnemonic terms it can be classified as ‘MUG’.
