OMG this seriously makes me want to cry..i would never purchase from these lines knowing this nowI saw this firsthand when I visited a leather-goods factory in China, where women 18 to 26 years old earn $120 a month sewing and gluing together luxury-brand leather handbags, knapsacks, wallets and toiletry cases. One bag I watched them put together for a brand whose owners insist is manufactured only in Italy cost $120 apiece to produce. That evening, I saw the same bag at a Hong Kong department store with a price tag of $1,200 a typical markup.
Wow. I feel ripped off. I'm sure those poor workers feel that even more so.
