This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Kil Soo Lee was one of the most well-known garment makers because of his cheap price and quick turn around time--being from American Samoa was a nice touch because retailers could proudly stamp "Made In America" on his clothes. But Lee had a dirty secret to his success: he forced his workers into labor through deceit. Workers in his factory were prisoners, frequently abused for not working fast enough, starved and sometimes raped. Those who wanted to leave the compound could...for a price: they had to pay Lee $5000.
In this short book, go inside and learn how Lee's garment empire fell.
