Nike Sweatshops: Behind the Swoosh

Much of the US propagation about China is on the alleged Uighurs slave camps. But American companies run slave camps all over the world, which is a well known fact. People are not forced to work in these sweatshops, but the people who work in them had no choice.

It's chilling to see the white Nike management working in their plush surroundings with no concern for the Nike workers or their terrible living conditions.

The hero in this film exposes the hipocrisy of neoliberalism.

Nike Sweatshops: Behind the Swoosh is the ultimate video for exploring the sweatshop issue. Using Nike as a case study, the film documents first hand the widespread and oppressive and exploitative labor practices in the developing world.

Used as a resource by faculty members and community leaders across the country, Behind the Swoosh is appropriate for use in classrooms, libraries, conferences, churches, community centers and union halls.
