85 Pounds? Whow......
I found my price in this article:
From Telegraph Nov. 2014: Feminist t-shirts worn by Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg allegedly made by women in poverty. T-shirts promoting feminism worn by celebrities are allegedly being made by migrant workers paid just 62p an hour.
T-shirts worn by Ed Miliband, Nick Clegg and Harriet Harman celebrating feminism are allegedly being produced by poverty stricken migrant workers paid just 62p an hour.
The women making the t-shirts, which carry the slogan “This is what a feminist looks like”, are being made in factories in Mauritius where the machinists are paid just 62p an hour, according to an investigation by the Mail On Sunday.
The paper says the women sleep 16 to a room and work 45 hour weeks earning the equivalent of just £120 a month.
The t-shirts retail in the UK at £45 and cost £9 to make.
One factory worker told the Mail On Sunday: "We do not see ourselves as feminists. We see ourselves as trapped."
It comes as Harriet Harman appeared on the front bench of Prime Minister’s Questions wearing the controversial shirt.
Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg have both posed in the shirt, which is produced by Whistles on behalf of the Fawcett Society.
David Cameron has come under further pressure to wear one but has so far refused to wear the shirt
Posting a picture of herself in the T-shirt Harriet Harman, the deputy leader of the Labour party, wrote on Twitter: “This is what a feminist will look like at Prime Minister’s Questions today @ELLEUK @fawcettsociety #ellefeminism”.
Celebrities pictured in the t-shirts include Benedict Cumberbatch, Tinie Tempah and Eddie Izzard.
Fayzal Ally Beegun, president of the International Textile, Garment and Leather Workers Union, told the paper: "The workers in this factory are treated very poorly and the fact that politicians in England are making a statement using these sweatshop t-shirts is appalling."
Whistles said it is launching an investigation into the allegations.
The Fawcett Society said it had been given assurances that the clothing was produced to “ethical standards”.
