YES buying a cheaper warehouse sweatshop shirt is better at $3 than buying a rip curl/nike shirt for $80, but not buying them will nto fix anything. buying them will ALSO not fix anything, government
You seem a little confused, the warehouse shirt and the nike shirt came from the same factory, most likely made by the same person. The difference is, that the warehouse makes $8 of the $8.30 from the casual concepts range of tshirts, and in the nike case, nike makes $80 from the $85 singlet or running shorts you just purchased.
Not buying stuff at Nike will not force them to close down, that makes no sense in for the business. Rather they would change their business strategy and price models to afford unionized labour.
It seems you like to live like this: "they have to give up their rights and their safety so I can wear some brand label clothing"
You're a worthless excuse for a human being, and no right fucking coming on a punk forum and trying to think you're anything like the people here.
