America has recently rediscovered its sweatshops. High profile scandals-from Kathy Lee to Nike-have brought the shocking and substandard conditions of factories to light causing more American to become aware of the relationship between the American consumer and foreign laborer. Focusing on American sweatshops-those sweatshops locating in the United States as well as those abroad whose products are purchased by American consumers-in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, these essays offer a historical perspective on sweatshops and on their role in global migration and economics. They explore nation debates over the sweatshop and suggest how these conversations have responded to changing patterns of global movements of people, goods and power. They also chronicle efforts to control and eradicate sweatshops and suggest how these campaigns were and remain both national and global.
