Dump The Duties: Add your voice


Dear Catherine Owens Surely a retailer should serve the public, not the public serve the retailer by reducing their working conditions to Chinese levels? I share your experience of finding that factories have just closed, or close just after I contact them, or can't afford to do what I'd like, but still believe it's possible in democratic welfare states like Slovakia and even in the UK. Subsidies to technical colleges and machines that any qualified person could use would be a good start, rather than subsidies for designers labels and PR. If you ever find a UK womens shoe factory, could you let me know? I'm not sure what Softwalker are doing. Hotter only sub-contract to large customers. regards John Robertson
