Let Them Eat Shitty, Slave-Made Off-The-Rack Dresses

We're pretty much just documenting the atrocities now but here you go -- life inside an Ivanka Trump sweatshop:
"Alia makes the legal minimum wage for her job in her province: 2.3 million rupiah, or about $173 a month – but that legal minimum is among the lowest in Indonesia as a whole, and as much as 40% lower than in Chinese factories, another labour source for the Ivanka Trump brand.
PT Buma, a Korean-owned garment company started in Indonesia in 1999, is one of the suppliers of G-III Apparel Group, the wholesale manufacturer for prominent fashion brands including Trump’s clothing.
Many Buma workers know who Ivanka Trump is. Alia noticed her labels popping up on the clothes about a year ago.
Ahmad, who also works in the local garment industry and who, like his wife and most of the workers at her PT Buma factory, is an observant Muslim, said: 'We don’t like Donald Trump’s policies.'”
At least Marie Antoinette had a pretty strong fashion game.
