As we shed our jeans and hit the sand this summer, spare a thought for those who may have blasted your jeans with sand, and paid dearly. Michelle Obama urges us to remember â€˜kidsâ€™ who work in sweatshops everywhere and to â€˜give something back.â€™ We meet one such worker: barely a teenager when he began making Adidas, Suwandi is now â€˜not brave enough to think far into the future.â€™ We look at his recent past to find out why. We report on dramatic developments in Honduras and mourn the passing of a great champion of workersâ€™ rights, Neil Kearney.
