Who Made Those Soccer Balls?

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.
