Common items we use that are produced unethically. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg --------------------------------------------------------------- Description: We all strongly desire expensive products at cheap cost, leading us to shop at major retailers such as Walmart of Costco, that offer merchandise and products at a great cost. Most of us don’t think about why the product is as cheap as it is, and how the big box corporations make their money from such cheap prices. Unfortunately, the cost of a great discount is rather great in terms of ethics and morale. What is even harder to swallow is the fact that some of most basic and common products come from worlds of corruption, slave labor, and harsh discipline procedures that make any humanitarian sick. However, because the...

Sometimes we have no choice, we work till dawn. When you work all night you become dizzy and your eyes hurt because you can't take any breaks. SANTA'S WORKSHOP takes you to the real world of China's toy factories. Workers tell us about long working hours, low wages, and dangerous work places. Those who protest or try to organize trade unions risk imprisonment. Low labor costs attract more and more companies to China. Today more than 75% of our toys are made in China. But this industry takes its toll on the workers and on the environment. The European (and American) buyers blame bad conditions on the Chinese suppliers. But they say that increasingly hard competition gives them no option. Who should we believe? And what can you do to bring about a fairer and more humane toy trade?

In which John Green teaches you about one of the least funny subjects in history: slavery. John investigates when and where slavery originated, how it changed over the centuries, and how Europeans and colonists in the Americas arrived at the idea that people could own other people based on skin color. Slavery has existed as long as humans have had civilization, but the Atlantic Slave Trade was the height, or depth, of dehumanizing, brutal, chattel slavery. American slavery ended less than 150 years ago. In some parts of the world, it is still going on. So how do we reconcile that with modern life?
