Joe went to the same cafe every day.
Why? Because of the good food and low prices.
How did, Jane, the owner, do it?
Jane said her staff were from Africa.
They can’t get regular jobs so she houses them in her basement and feeds them.
She pays them a fiver a day.
They work six days a week.
That’s how she can offer low prices.
“It’s better than nothing for the Africans,” says Jane
Joe decided to boycott the cafe.
But exploitation happens all the time.
We import cheap goods and they are cheap bebcayse the people making them are being paid very low wages.
And when we buy cheap goods we are helping maintain the exploitation!
Also competition from businesses that employ workers that are low paid cause properly paid workers to lose their jobs.
There have been many injustices which whole sections of society supported.
Consider the actions of whites during apartheid, men before women were given equal rights, etc.
It’s wrong to support exploitation, but we do it!!!.
WE DO OUR BEST TO NOT BE AWARE OF THE REASONS OURS GOODS ARE INEXPENSIVE. WE BELIEVE THE MATERIALS ARE CHEAPER. WE BELIEVE THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES ARE PAYING EMPLOYEES WHAT THEY CAN.
WE BELIEVE WHAT EVER IT TAKES, TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE SAVINGS. YES, EXPLOITATION IS OK.
This is very true. It is wrong to support exploitation, but we all guilty of doing that.
