    At Nike, we're dedicated to making more money so you'll invest in our company when our profits soar. That's why we've established exclusive Sweatshops™ in poverty-stricken nations to allow us to treat our workers like dirt and increase our profit margins. Now that we make more money than ever before, we're sure you'll buy our stock—and you'll be glad you did, when it comes time to retire.

    Nike Sweatshops™—unlocking the power of poverty.






    Whats even more stupid to me... is that poverty stricken people in the US seem to love Nike, yet dont see the hipocrisy in supporting Nike and disliking their own financial situation at the same time. "The man keeps me down, pays me less than I'm worth, I work too hard and too long for too little, etc" but "those new air force ones are tight, can't wait to cop a pair that costs half my paycheck" while someone living in poverty in another country made your shoes and got paid less than half of what minimum wage is here... because Nike chose to outsource to be able to pay people less than their worth and bring the product home and charge more... when they should've kept the jobs here, and taken the cuts from the CEOs and endorsements rather than the worker. But why would they do anything at all moral like that... when they can have broke people make their shoes, rich people endorse them, and broke people buy them for a rediculous markup? Keep the poor people poor, capitalism is life. Business is business I suppose. I still think there are other shoes I'd rather wear than theirs.

    Nikes make the flyest sneakers

    That's common knowledge

    That sweatshop shit is unfortunate but it's not gonna stop me from copping Nike Airs

    This is like eating meat

    Chickens are fuckin slaughtered cruelly but you still eat em don't you?

    nike does not make the flyest sneakers IMO... half look like fucking space shoes, the other half like clown shoes... every time I see someone wearing a pair of Nikes I think... wow, Nike, thats original, who told you that was cool, the 80s?
