Kardashians violated Labour and Human Rights

Star Magazine says clothing lines owned by the Kardashians are made in factories in China which applies harsh conditions to their workers. This was according to an investigation by the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights. These factories labor 84 hours a wee with $1/hour salary in a 100-degrees heat squalid rooms with no air-conditioning. This includes  QVC brands K-Dash by Kardashian and the Kris Jenner Kollection.

"Not only are celebrities like the Kardashians taking advantage of these workers," institute exec director Charles Kernaghan is quoted as saying, "they are holding hands with a government that spits on democracy and women's rights."

Kris Jenner tells TMZ that the factories the Kardashians use are "strictly policed" and that there are no child labor or human rights violations.

"Kernaghan tells TMZ that Star twisted his words. He says none of the allegations against the Kardashians can be proved, adding that he was giving a general description of working conditions in that part of China." (http://articles.philly.com/2011-12-22/news/30547153_1_kardashian-family-kris-jenner-k-dash)

I think that this issue should be investigated more. We all know what labour abuse and violation of human rights to labour is very much rampant in China. Labor is very cheap in China but the products made in China are sold at very high prices in many countries - who benefits? Just picture out poverty among Chinese workers and the glamour of those retailers... It is such an unfair business! There should be proper salary, benefits and working conditions to those workers. I hope the Kardashians will have their names cleared out from this allegation if it is not true, or have things straightened out if it isn't true.
