Rod Palmquist, of the Sweatshop Coalition says that their campaign to stop the production of Husky apparel in sweatshop is over. “We won,” he says.
By 2009, 25% of UW apparel will be produced in factories that pay a living wage. UW will then increase the number of sweatshop-free factories it uses by 25% every year, until all Husky goods are sweatshop-free.
UW spokesman Norm Arkans says that the school is ready to “roll up our sleeves and get working.”
