British songstress Little Boots is taking a stand against sweatshops!
The pop star recently joined the anti-poverty campaign War on Want to make her message known. She said,
"I support the campaign against sweatshops. It's awful for anyone who is not being paid minimum wage to work their backsides off. It is terrible that these sweatshops exist in Britain. The clothes aren't the problem because they are cheaper and you can't blame people for getting bargains. It is the manufacturers who need to make sure there are proper conditions for their workers. Look at the shops like [British fashion chain] Oasis, who do everything above the board and pay workers good wages and overtime. If they can do it, why can't everybody?"
And good for her for putting her fame to good use.
