In light of the current situation in East Timor, and the role of Indonesia’s military in the present crisis, we want to take a look at labor rights in Indonesia — specifically, the labor practices of Nike and their collusion with that country’s government. Despite the "Code of Conduct" written by the corporation, a sensible sounding set of rules for contractors making Nike sneakers and apparel, organizations such as Press for Change are charging worker exploitation, wage suppression and intimidation.

Guest:

  • Jeff Ballinger, Director, Press for Change, a consumer information organization dealing with labor rights issues in Asia.
