BUSTED: Ivanka Trump pays sweatshop workers near minimum wage for 57-hour workweeks

The author of the upcoming book, “Women Who Work” will have to answer for how she treats the women who work for her.

The Washington Post reports that inspectors with the Fair Labor Association found dozens of violations of international labor standards during an audit of a factory in China owned by the G-III Apparel Group — which owns the rights to manufacture and distribute Ivanka’s fashion line.

The newspaper noted the timing of the inspectors’ report, “comes as the president’s daughter has sought to cast herself as both a champion of workplace issues and a defender of her father’s “buy American, hire American” agenda.”

Just yesterday, G-III was busted for rebranding Ivanka’s clothing line and dumping it on the discount retailer Stein Mart.

This week’s G-III scandals are just the latest to plague Ivanka’s fashion empire during her father’s First 100 Days as president. Only weeks after being sworn-in, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway broke ethics rules by telling Fox News viewers to “go buy” Ivanka’s products.

6. Which is why I'm sick and tired ....

Of people saying that Ivanka is this high-minded, champion of woman's rights who'll reign her father, and soften his non-existent heart.

WRONG.

She's only there to grift, steal and LIE. Oh, and to baby-sit her crazy, putin-loving daddy. Even some Dems are saying she's not "that" bad. HA! She's just as sleazy, rotten and grifting as her daddy and the rest of that Klan (Minus the 10 year old, and I don't know anything about Tiffany).

5. I'm a little confused about "Ivanka's clothing line"

There's nothing unusual about Ivanka's clothes, except the name inside of them. Since her blouses are pretty much the same as anyone else's blouses, what's the problem with the company rebranding them to get rid of them?

8. The whole Trump family should be forced to work in a sweatshop for 2.5 years.

 

Except Barron and the youngest daughter.

9. Let's see if she gets the Kathy Lee Gifford treatment. I'm guessing not.

For those who don't remember, Kathy Lee was exonerated over a report from a labor group who uncovered her clothing line was a sweatshop where 13 and 14 year old girls worked.
