Name Speech 1 9:30 Persuasive Speech Outline Date Stop Buying Products From Companies That Use Sweatshops (Proposition of Policy) Introduction : How many of you have purchased products from any of these companies? ( visual aid ) * Nike * Phillips-Van Heusen * Disney * Guess? * The Gap * Banana Republic * Old Navy * Tommy Hilfiger * Reebok * Levi Straus * Liz Caliborne * Ralph Lauren * Mattel * Wal-Mart * Roohsing(Hong Kong clothing company) * Kohl's ( Credibility statement ) I used to, until I found out how many of their products are made. ( Pathos Show 30 sec. Global Exchange video of Sadisah, an Indonesian ex-Nike worker, who, with dignity and defiance, describes conditions for workers there and what she wants done about them.) Children are sold like furniture, branded, beaten, blinded as punishment for wanting to go home, rendered speechless by the trauma of their enslavement. For pennies an hour, these children work in dank sheds, stitching soccer balls with the familiar Nike swoosh and t- shirts, skirts, shoes, dolls—so transnational companies can make their fortunes. Many U.S. companies have sweatshops in Indonesia, Korea, Taiwan, El Salvador, Pakistan, and many poor countries some of us have never even heard of. ( Preview) I hope to persuade you today that the use of sweatshops to produce clothing at a low cost is inhumane and handled poorly by most U.S. corporations. I want to persuade you to become active in changing the unfortunate circumstances surrounding sweatshops. ( Proposition of policy) Once you hear my speech, I hope you will stop buying products from companies that use sweatshops.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
