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 ‘kids’ who work in sweatshops everywhere and to ‘give something back.’ We meet one such worker: barely a teenager when he began making Adidas, Suwandi is now ‘not brave enough to think far into the future.’ 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 workers’ rights, Neil Kearney.
