Sweatshop Olympics

By Golfrefugees

SWEATSHOP OLYMPICS Here is the official London 2012 Olympics mascot called Wenlock.
Organisers commissioned 40 focus groups before deciding upon the final design.

Many people think the design is rubbish, some people believe it looks like a penis and others really like it.

Unfortunately for the organisers information has leaked out that all of the mascots were made in China using sweatshop labor. With hourly rates of just 26p per hour being paid to the workers.

Would it be a good idea for all goods to have the amount paid to the workers displayed on the product?

If this causes embarrassment for the organisers or brands who are official suppliers, perhaps they will consider paying a living wage.
