It's easy to criticize bad jobs like that when you live in a country with labor laws, a strong welfare system, sumptuous minimum wages, and a ridiculously high standard of living.
First-world lifestyles are the exception, not the rule.
#23 - allamericandude (11/25/2012) [-]
Wages are effectively determined by the supply and demand of the labor force for that job. Yes, it's possible to pay sweatshop workers more, in the same way that it's perfectly possible for Apple to drop the price of an iPhone to $50. But as long as people are willing to take a job in a sweatshop at such low wages (or wait in line outside an Apple store to pay $600 for an iPhone) there's really no economic reason to change.
Like I said, nobody is forced to work in sweatshops. But a bad job is better than no job. Having a meager wage to feed your kids is still miles better than scavenging for food on the streets.
#25 - allamericandude (11/25/2012) [-]
That's true. But the fact of the matter is that in this world there will be haves and have nots. Like I said earlier, first-world lifestyles are the exception rather than the rule. We shouldn't accept that fact, but we should understand it. Simply dismissing poor working conditions and sweatshop labor as "oppression by the Man" is a gross misrepresentation, and it misses the real heart of the issue. There's no one person or entity or -ism that we can really blame for all of this, and there is no magic quick-fix. It is what it is, all we can do is try to make it better.

If you are trying to correct a definition then you are just being a stupid grammar nazi.
It's this thing called a metaphor, derived from a simile. Sweatshops are like slavery. Sweatshops are slavery. Slaves had a choice work or die. Sweatshop workers had a choice, work or starve to death. Seems like slavery to me. Therefore sweatshops = slavery. It's not meant to be the correct definition
it's to highlight the wrongness of sweatshops, by emphasizing how similar it is to slavery.
Definition has fuck all to do with it.

Don't trivialize this. This is a very important distinction to make. I'm not just being pedantic. Real slavery IS still an issue in this world, so calling anything else "slavery" detracts from that issue's legitimacy. The only reason people call sweatshop labor "slavery" is because they live in a country rich and strong enough so that they don't NEED to work in a sweatshop. Calling it "slavery" implies that the workers did not have a choice to work there, which, besides being false, is almost an insult to the workers who made the choice to work there to support themselves and their families. That's why I called it "elitist", because it implies that the workers are too stupid, weak, and poor to realize how miserable their working conditions are.

90% of what you just said tells me you're trying to be an internet psychologist:
"... victim complex.
You're obviously pissed about what happened, so how about you take your meds and forget about it."
Not to forget about the other argument that you've seem to forgot about already.
#34 - latiel (11/24/2012) [-]
Well you called me a Nazi, which screams "AMG WE'RE BEING OPPRESSED", despite the fact that you invoked the argument and decided to continue it. Funnily enough, you were the first one to actually outright personally insult me.
Y'see, this is what you're doing:
Furfag: "HEY GUISE I'M A FURRIE YIHF YIHF YIHF LOOK AT MAI FURSHIT"
Person: "Fuck off, retard."
Furfag: "AMG FURSECUTION </////3"
So it's a little hard not to point it out when you're making me out to be Hitler or something, especially in a thread where I'm not involved. I just shows that you're pissant about the whole deal.
