KING5.com reported Thursday (Nov. 18th) that they discovered that a business called Haos Sewing is operating a “sweatshop” out of a garage on SW 122nd in Burien.

According to the report:

…when you walk through the garage door you might feel like you have been transported back in time, or to a third world country.

That is because the garage is more like a factory than a home and people who have worked there describe sweatshop conditions.

KING says that one woman who works for the company “is making less than $1.60 per hour for her work.”

Here’s the full video:

    I’m REALLY surprised that the City of Burien missed this activity and all the associated tax revenue! But hey, I’m sure they’ve got more important issues to worry about than a sweatshop operating right under their noses.

    I sincerely hope that someone in her community shows her the snowy mountains and tulips – one never gets tired of those!
