The Human Lives behind the Labels: The Global Sweatshop, Nike, and the Race to the Bottom.
Bigelow, Bill
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n2 p112-19 Oct 1997
The importance of discovering invisible social realities, of looking behind masks presented by everyday consumer goods (like T-shirts and soccer balls), inspired an Oregon high school teacher's efforts to teach about global sweatshops and child labor in poor countries. By examining loopholes in Nike's "code of conduct," students discovered promises to obey local government regulations do not translate into decent wages. Sidebar lists resources. (MLH)
