I tend to agree but the plants in Vietnam don't use slaves in the manner of China's exploitation of the Uyghurs, and making cheap clothes and footwear in the EU and US would raise prices by a factor of three or four at least. Sweatshops are hardly confined to low income nations either. Go work in a FedEx or UPS terminal. Hard work, no breaks and low pay, where the saying is "part time is full time and full time is all the time".
