Ivanka Trump: Denounce Clothing Line’s Allegedly Unethical Labor Practices

Target: Ivanka Trump, daughter of President Donald Trump

Goal: Urge Ivanka Trump to call for an end to the use of unfair labor in the production of her designer clothing line.

Since 2012, Ivanka Trump’s clothing line has been manufactured at a Chinese factory where conditions for nearly 80 workers were deemed unsafe and unsatisfactory according to recent reports. At the time of inspection, workers were paid barely more than the equivalent of $1 per hour for over 60 hours per week and were denied housing assistance as required by Chinese law.

Now that Ms. Trump is an official adviser to her father’s administration, she has stepped down from the day-to-day management of her business. Yet due to her position of power and her significant ownership interest in the brand, Ivanka still has the potential to influence what goes on in her name-brand company. Her father, President Trump, has called for a return of American labor and manufacturing as part of his much-lauded promise to “Make America Great Again.” Ms. Trump should denounce global suppliers and contractors who reportedly exploit workers and force them to endure unfair and unsafe conditions and push for American made or global free trade alternatives.

Rather than making speeches to promote her brand or posting dresses to social media, Ms. Trump could shine light on the global crises of unfair labor. Please sign the petition belong to urge Ivanka Trump to use her advisory position and her place in the spotlight to effect change for both her clothing line and for manufacturing worldwide.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Ms. Trump,

The recent reports which reveal that the contractor who exclusively manufactures your brand’s clothing line relied on underpaid and overworked Chinese employees who were illegally denied many benefits is part of a troubling global trend. Many companies worldwide currently work with similar contractors who view labor as cheap and expendable, and who severely mistreat their workers or subject them to unsafe working conditions.

Rather than promoting your clothing line to generate brand awareness and sales, you should shine a light on this global crisis and raise awareness. On behalf of the countless exploited factory workers who labor in dangerous conditions and receive little compensation, I urge you to push for American-made or global fair trade alternatives for your products, and to encourage other business owners and corporations to do the same.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    You’d have to go after almost all of the high-end clothing manufacturers. It is not only Trump’s line.

    I saw a documentary about women in prison hand-knitting beautiful sweaters. They are paid $10 per item. BUT – the sweaters are sold for over $400. Talk about slave labor.

    Not signed. I’ll sign if we go after every a-hole designer.
    BTW – NOT a fan of the Trumps. I just think because he’s not popular, Trump should not be singled out for a much larger problem.

    all right miss trumpy you must stop making clothes! let everyone else be who they r not be forced to wear your clothes!

  6. Disgusting. Besides petitions and protests, I think that the public needs to start becoming informed about which businesses are actually involved in slavery and cruelty toward humans and animals, and subsequently boycott them. We need to start looking for Fair Trade and Cruelty-Free labels and buying only these.
    We, the consumers, have a responsibility to put our money where our mouth is and stop supporting exploitative and abusive businesses.
    We also, because of our huge numbers, have the POWER to stop these businesses dead in their tracks.
