The Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights has launched an investigation into the Kardashians for selling and endorsing products that are made using "slave labor" in foreign sweatshops.
The human rights group claims items from their QVC lines K-DASH by Kardashian and the Kris Jenner Kollection as well as ShoeDazzle, which Kim co-founded, are all made in China where workers are subjected to inhumane conditions.
Charles Kernaghan, executive director of the institute, says:
"The Kardashians are in bed with some pretty bad people. Not only are celebrities like the Kardashians taking advantage of these workers, they are holding hands with a government that spits on democracy and women’s rights."
"You can’t talk during working hours. You can’t listen to music; you can’t stand up and stretch. You can’t even put your head up and look around, or you will be screamed at. If you get permission to use the toilet, you get four minutes. If you’re highly specialized, you cannot even go to the bathroom."
We certainly hope this isn't true, then again we wouldn't be surprised if it was either.
