Little Boots Campaigns Against Sweat Shops

Little Boots shot to fame in 2009 and has quickly established herself a household name. She has decided to use her influence for good this year as she begins a campaign with the charity War on Want. Little Boots (aka Victoria Hesketh) is making a stand against sweat shops in the UK and India where workers are exploited.

She commented, "I support the campaign against sweatshops. It's awful for anyone who is not being paid minimum wage and work (sic) their backsides off. It is terrible that these sweatshops exist in Britain."

She went on to explain that the problem largely lies with the companies, not the shoppers. "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 shops like (fashion chain) Oasis, who do everything above board and pay workers good wages and overtime. If they can do it, why can't everybody?" Do you agree with Little Boots that more should be done to stop these kind of factories existing?
