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.

    So, then, why wouldn’t retailers and printers sell these t-shirts? Because they want to make an extra dollar of profit per shirt, on the backs of abused workers?
