Now Anybody Can Sell Sweatshop-Free, Living Wage Alta Gracia Shirts
This month, the Knights Apparel company is introducing an Alta Gracia line of t-shirts and sweatshirts and paying the workers who make them 338% of the minimum wage of the Dominican Republic plus benefits in a unionized environment.
Initially, they were to be sold only to the collegiate market. But now Knights Apparel announces that anyone can sell them.
That’s one more nail in the coffin of the We-Have-No-Choice-But-to-Sell-Sweatshop-Shirts argument.
