Nike accused of using military to intimidate workers

Quote

Workers at a Nike shoe factory in Indonesia say the company paid military personnel to intimidate them into working for less than the minimum wage.

Quote

[W]orkers at the Nike factory in the west Java city of Sukabumi say they were made to sign a petition supporting the factory's claim to be exempt from paying the new wage.

In mobile phone footage of the factory, shown to the ABC, a man standing over workers can be heard telling them, "you all have to sign it".

This is an ultra-distrubing report. I seem to recollect that Nike have been under the micrscope for similar low-wage exploits in the past as well.

Yes, Nike are serial offenders.Given the attitude of US Companies in their own economy we should not be surprised. But this is capitalism: Buy in the cheapest market, sell in the dearest.

Sadly true. The true cost of capitalism.

A cost which is becoming more and more of a burden.

Hence the slogan, "Just do it."
