We've all seen the horrific images of hundreds of innocent women burned or crushed to death in factories while making our clothes. In the next few days we can get companies to stop it happening again.

Funny, people will go out a buy clothes, that cost at most a 1 to make, for 30-40 and have no worry s about the people making them, if you wish to stop this just stop buying the clothes to they do something

The overseas work shops have become too dangerous and have been
declared unfit for the woman who work in them. An American woman
has started a movement to re-establish clothing manufacturing in the US
again. The initial factory is slated to open in Brooklyn NY. The clothing
industries have enjoyed surmountable profits since using overseas
labor at the benefit of the consumer. As such a consumer I profess the
productivity has become of lesser quality and workmanship bordering on
shoddy. American made Union Label Labor would be advantageous for
the citizens and the country.
Not on FB but I will get word to these outfitters.
Signed the petition
Thank you Cal

Signed * When these companies no longer have the sales or orders to do it they will think!
They make the see thru shirts and cheapest things possible, you see this kind of thing at Walmart, always read your labels and look at the products! They should be shamed making the people work in these conditions but it goes to show you the companies don't care all they care about is the $$$$$ They need to be SHUT DOWN if they can't improve conditions!

I buy a lot of my clothes at H&M and now have been looking at the tags. I'm ashamed to admit that most of the items were made in Bangladesh. I am so sorry and will work to make the company change it's practices, or I'll not shop there anymore.

Support Fair Trade! We must all be prepared to pay a little more for our clothing. Everyone deserves a fair day's pay for a fair day's work, no matter who they are or where they are.

UPDATE: 24 hours to get GAP . - 984,444 have signed. Let's get to 1,250,000
Update: 20 May 2013

Huuuuuge victory! H&M signed the Bangladesh safety agreement and our campaign is all over the media, but GAP is refusing to sign up. But GAP will hold its annual shareholders meeting tomorrow -- let's make sure
the CEO knows customers across the world demand our clothes are made in safe conditions. Avaaz will follow-up with actions in front of the shareholders meeting and by taking out ads to shame the CEO in his hometown. Sign and share the campaign now -- we have 24 hours left!
