    Basically, hypocrites who support "slave" labor:


    Ivanka Trump, as a member of her father’s administration, is now an ambassador for her father’s populist rhetoric; a defender of the working man who has sworn to “Buy American, Hire American!” But like her father, she is an outrageous hypocrite who feels no shame at making a fortune off the backs of exploited foreign workers.

    The Washington Post has just discovered that the factory which produces the clothes sold under the Ivanka Trump fashion brand pays its workers $62 a week for 60 hours of work – or barely a dollar per hour.

    Operated by the G-III Apparel Group, the eighty workers at this factory toil for slave-wages 360 days a year to produce the garments that Ivanka sells for hundreds of dollars.

    The workers get just five days off a year.

    An audit of the factory found more than two dozen violations of international labor standards.

    Fewer than a third of the factory’s workers were offered legally mandated coverage under China’s “social insurance” benefits, including a pension and medical, maternity, unemployment and work-related injury insurance, inspectors found. The factory also did not contribute, as legally required, to a fund designed to help workers afford housing, inspectors said.
