Definitely not a country that exploits low paid workers or a country that uses violence to secure rare earth sources used in said electronics. No-one I know is unaware of this issue so how does this help? Where does the money donated go? Definitely not to pay for cheap electronics or the wages of some charity organisation. January 11, 2016 Reply Manon D So the video tries to gilt trip us into 'donating' 2 euros, because the t-shirt was made by underpaid people? But what about all the other brands whose clothes are manufactured in the same conditions and are sold to us for way more than 2 euros? In my opinion it is worse to sell a shirt for 50 euros and pay the taylors an equal amount as the ones selling the shirts for 2 euros do… And even so, donating wouldn't help, the ones you 'save' will be replaced by other people who will be happy to have a job and earn 13 cents an hour rather than nothing. It is not up to us ordinary people to try to help them because it will simply not make any difference, you can try all you want, but it is the system that has to be changed, something that will have to happen by means of laws and regulations, not by donations. January 17, 2016 Reply Dj2xP I would have totally bought the T-shirt… You give the machine €2 to buy a shirt, then, it makes you watch this stupid video stating the obvious (with what should still be common knowledge), and then it makes you feel bad about buying it by putting a donate button next to the buy button…"Wanna buy a shirt? FOOLED YOU, we just wanted that money" – is what it translates to, and what happens to the shirts that don't get bought? Also, donate towards what?

January 22, 2016 Reply Joe I would buy because economically speaking, it is better for a person to be paid 13 cents than nothing at all. The way countries have higher wages is through full employment and competition–this will help everyone there in the long run. Not to mention, 13 cents can buy a lot more there than here, so it is a bit misleading in that sense January 23, 2016 Reply patryk i teraz może będą produkować w europie.

Not to mention that a prove would be not to put the 2 euro coin anyway! So, please let us know how many did put the 2 Euros? What about roses (Kenya), Chocolate (Congo)… do you mfs still eat "Belgian" or "Swiss" chocolate? do you offer your girl or mom roses "Dutch" roses?What about fruits (poor South American countries)? Do you usually buy "Spanish" tropical fruits? or "USA" bananas from United fruits, Chiquita Brands International Inc? Search the history behind the "Banana Republic" phrase to learn about the looting of more South American countries and their control via the "dept" trick Yeah, in the mean time keep on pressing "donate" on machines you put the 2 euro coins first and then probably realized you are being recorded…. I'm gonna puke! June 10, 2016 Reply RadespotosR yeah bullshit, lot of Europeans are working more hours for less (if you consider the cost of life), for the sake of German Union OF COURSE!!!! June 10, 2016 Reply C Cege honestly, what you're doing by not buying the shirt is robbing people of their job. even if you don't but from sweatshop companies, you won't know where or how the materials for your clothes came from. there's still a lot of modern slavery and cotton plantations. the only thing that will help these people is if the law is changed to their favor.i still make an effort to buy from sweatshop free companies for the sake of being able to talk about it more, though.

In my opinion, it is def wrong for cheap labour to exist, but has anyone told me how high fashion industry make their clothes? And why should I pay 50, 60 or even 100$ for a T shirt and give it to some smuck who has baptized himself high couture? There has to be a middle line here. July 11, 2016 Reply Chirag Kalra Awesome campaign! July 11, 2016 Reply snapshopped. I like the experiment. But about all those stories and probably true facts there's still one thing leaving me wondering. People in life make choices. So if it's not enough to live from and underpaid, why not changing the job? The problem is, if someone says 'no' to the working conditions another person will work under those conditions, because this person considers it to be better than nothing. So it's about people. If people collectively said 'no' the conditions would change. And still, life is all about choices. Don't get me wrong, it's a shame how working conditions are in some parts of the world and I'm not supporting it at all. I just want to see it from another perspective and not only judge the big corporations. It's them and the employees. The only chance to change it, to collectively not accept those conditions. July 19, 2016 Reply Tim Suetens This is BS. These people aren't pressing "donate" because they want to do good. They probably realize they're being watched or filmed (as the whole thing is a set up) and don't want to publicly disgrace themselves by pressing "buy". You're emotionally blackmailing them to comply. Now, I agree with your message. But if you think this will "better people" out of people, you're mistaken.

Where's the "Return the money" button? And why should the money be donated anyways? And where to? The women will lose their jobs if the company won't sell those t-shirts. Besides.. What the hell are we supposed to wear then? Those t-shirts were just plain white t-shirts, not some desiner-super-duper supreme clothes. Damn..

Sure, they invest in Africa's infrastructure but they also buy themselves into decision-making so African government represents Chinese interests… what a twisted, sick world this is. This entire project has achieved its goal… they made the accountable companies dodge the bullet in another part of the globe where shit is even more burning. August 2, 2017 Reply TxikiChan The Funny thing is that all people buy a t-shirt for 10€ or more in any shop and it's made in the same place with the same girls… Like Zara, H&M, Primark… etc and all textil industries made their clothes the same way.. Very funny. This video and the machine should have the names of shops that works this way. August 14, 2017 Reply Leyla 98% of comments= dissing the video2% of comments= memes or whateverme= Obviously if they don't work, they don't get money, but if you buy the cheap shirts instead of finding shirts that weren't made from people in developing countries, then you could help stop the companies from producing, whether it helps the people or not. They are taking advantage of these people and you guys are all complaining and saying that it's better than any other option, but do you not feel any guilt that you support terrible companies that put people to work cheaply in weak buildings and in a dangerous environment? Do you feel proud that you buying a t-shirt can cause a death of another person just because you wanted a cheap t-shirt? It's sad how corrupt people are today because they don't seem to give a shit or even think of donating because they just want a bargain. We already have enough money, look at them.

Today, I begin a new assignment. I go from the garden to the desert of the gate. I went in to talk to the Lord for a while. I asked Him for a blessing and for graces to faithfully carry out the duties entrusted to me. I heard these words: My daughter, I am always with you. I have given you the opportunity to practice deeds of mercy which you will perform according to obedience. You will give Me much pleasure if, each evening, you will speak to Me especially about this task. I felt that Jesus had given me a new grace in relation to my new duties; but, despite this, I have locked myself deeper in His Heart (Diary, 1267).

Suddenly I heard the bell in the next room, and I went in and rendered a service to a seriously sick person. When I returned to my room, I suddenly saw the Lord Jesus, who said, My daughter, you gave Me greater pleasure by rendering Me that service than if you had prayed for a long time. I answered, “But it was not to You, Jesus, but to that patient that I rendered this service.” And the Lord answered me, Yes, My daughter, but whatever you do for your neighbor, you do for Me (Diary, 1029).

However, if someone has freely agreed to be employed somewhere, they naturally choose the highest paying best job option available to them. If you stop buying from the business that employs them, the business closes down, and that employee now has to downgrade to an even lower paying job. I am all for charity, and I donate regularly, but please do not assume that your (likely high) standard of living is immediately available to all people everywhere, until their local economies catch up to the standard of living you enjoy and take for granted. Developing countries take time for their local economies to mature. The free market has cut global poverty in half in the last 30 years.
