Fast Fashion Puts Sales Over Human Welfare

In their pursuit of cheap production, major fashion brands often relocate their production facilities to underdeveloped parts of the world, mostly in the Second and Third World. A 2018 US Department of Labor Report found evidence of forced child labor in the fashion industry in Argentina, Bangladesh, Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Turkey, Vietnam and others. Due to poverty and unawareness, the families of these underprivileged children know better than to question the quality in which their sons and daughters are being treated, or to demand for their rights as workers. Child fashion workers are not only made to work in critically substandard conditions all day long; they are also stripped of their fundamental right to education. Rapid production means that sales and profits supersede human welfare - one of the horrendous impacts fast fashion has created in order to keep up with today's trends.

Manipulation Over Low Wages

The fashion industry believes and markets that they create employment opportunities in Second and Third World countries, and because of this, their sweatshops take advantage of the employees willingness to work -  irrespective of whether those employees are paid living wages or not. In most of these countries, the minimum wages paid to employees by contractors hired by the fashion industries do not even cover their primary needs, let alone allow for savings or any additional funds - trapping them into a continuous cycle of never ending work.
