Alright chap listen here, I'm not puttin' up with your slackin' mate.
Many men had to work at the Nike factories for two reasons: either being forced by the locals or because at the time, it was one of the best and only jobs.
The effect on the workers
Work was tough; sweatshop conditions were common in Nike factories, and the pay was low for the amount of labour they commit to.
Punishments were cruel in Vietnam. They included public mockery or being beaten for tampering with the shoes. A temporary prison sentence was also a punishment for repeat offenders.
Because of the sweatshop conditions and the confirmed abuse of workers in the early days of the factories, it was likely that workers could become depressed or have a drug/nicotine addiction, as cocaine and nicotine were both legal in the late 90's and 2000's.
