Description

Last year, the Dallas Cowboys ranked third in the NFL in merchandise sales, and three years ago their operation generated more than $90 million. But virtually none of the shirts, jerseys and jackets made for "America's Team" is made in America. Instead, Cowboys merchandise is produced all over the world, and in some cases, in factories that are considered sweatshops, where workers make 29 cents per hour. Currently, claims of labor rights violations, such as mandatory overtime and unfair pay, are coming from workers in some overseas factories that produce Cowboys' apparel. Outside the Lines traveled to Cambodia to visit two of those factories.
