Hey guys! Yet another exposé on one of biggest brands that you know and love!
I wasn’t actually aware of how deep the situation was with this month’s brand until it was mentioned in a recent Dispatches series that came out regarding their workers’ conditions. Only difference was, many of the workers exploited by this company reside here in the UK.
This month I’m highlighting the reality behind one of the most iconic brands in the world. The majority of us possess something with that glorious tick on it, including myself.
Because of this, it is crucial that we understand the cost that comes with these branded products, and the suffering that comes with it.
This is exactly why we need to be aware, why we need to call out Nike, and why we need to keep the voices of workers loud and clear. As Nike continues to shroud their voices with a glamorous mask consisting of million dollar ads, embarrassing attempts to pander to certain demographics to show they care (yes I’m @’ing their Nike hijab #cringe), and using A list stars such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bella Hadid to promote their goods, they are attempting to make us forget our humanity, our basic morals, our belief in basic human rights, and to ‘Just Do It.’
