I've been surprised to discover how the world of work and learning has so much in common. Organizational structure, measuring success, deadlines and the difference between hearing and learning have all come in to play. As my first cohort of students graduate here is snapshot of what I have learned so far:
The retailer did not strike a deal with the Trudeaus.

When you think of millennials and fashion, the first thing that may come to mind is big brand names. After all, millennials are hard-working, successful individuals who go after what they want and indulging in that high-end designer item may be their way of treating themselves. However, recent findings are proving otherwise.

When I shop, I want to know how the pieces I like are made. I look at the tag. I ask where the fabrics are from. I read about the designer. These details reveal the process of a piece that earns a hanger in my closet. This is what separates Heather Smith's designs of Laos-based shop Passa Paa from fast fashion retailers and puts a value on owning her pieces.

The price of a piece of clothing is not at all indicative of the working conditions of its manufacturer. On top of that, implying (or outright saying) that there is something morally wrong with paying ten dollars for a t-shirt is incredibly classist. The truth is that when brand names charge higher prices for their items, that extra cash usually goes to two places: into the pockets of CEOs and other higher-ups, and into the company's advertising budget.

Let's stop asking whether a company should stay in Bangladesh or leave the country. Instead let's ask whether that company is willing to take steps to create stable jobs that are safe, where workers have the right to organize, and where they receive a living wage.

In the aftermath of the deadly Bangladesh factory collapse, Loblaw has been admirably vocal about its plans to compensate victims' families and to make checking the structural integrity of factory buildings part of its future audits of suppliers. But the interesting part of this story will come in a few months, once the news cycle has moved on from the disaster in Dakha. Will Loblaw have the fortitude to get out there and remind us all of the disturbing incident in order to update us on the details of its follow-through? Or will it be content to let its customers' thoughts of the collapse quietly fade away, as they are bound to do?
International labour rights groups say they will be closely watching Canada's Loblaw Companies. Ltd., along with other retailers, to see if they live up to promises made after the deadly Rana Plaza fa...

You don't need to check the price tags to deduce that Joe Fresh is cheap crap -- the designs are dull and derivative, and the feel of the fabrics usually falls somewhere between cardboard and sandpaper. Joe Fresh clothing clearly isn't meant to last, and it's not meant to impress, either. If you're looking for reasons to stop buying clothes from them -- after nearly 400 people were killed last week in the collapse of a factory in Bangladesh that produced products for the Canadian label -- here are two good reasons to do so.
Last week more than 300 garment workers in Bangladesh died, forcing Canadians to take a hard look at where their T-shirts and yoga pants come from, how they were made, and by whom. It's easier for a small-to-mid-sized company such as us to source at home. But can you manufacture ethically overseas?
