While people around the globe keep their eyes glued to the World Cup, the sweatshop production of soccer balls stays well hidden. The International Labor Rights Forum has issued a new report that lends us a peek. Heading to the countries where soccer balls are made, the ILRF found soccer ball stitchers forced to work 21-hour shifts and not even paid the sub-poverty minimum wage. They also found kids working in those factories.
Read the report and ask yourself why after all these years soccer balls are still being made in sweatshops.
