Little Boots Campaigns Against Sweatshops

Pop singer LITTLE BOOTS is waging war against sweatshops in a bid to raise awareness of unhealthy working conditions in poor countries.
The British star - real name Victoria Hesketh - has joined a campaign with anti-poverty charity War on Want to rally against factories that exploit workers both in India and her native U.K.
She says, "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. 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?"
