  • 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.
