Behind the Swoosh @ University of Tennessee-Knoxville (TN) - 11/16/11 - University Center Auditorium
Chelsea Pflum, Ohio State chapter of United Students Against Sweatshops, speaks to Bill Shkurti, OSU’s senior vice president for business and finance, Wednesday in his office. The group wants OSU to pressure Nike because, they contend, that the company doesn’t treat its workers properly. Nike recently closed two factories in Honduras. “Many of the workers never received their final paychecks, and are owed back pay and severance packages totaling $2 million,” Theresa Yoon, President of the chapter, told The Lantern (the campus newspaper).
