Professor Benjamin Powell defines sweatshops and explains that the actions of the anti-sweatshop protest movement will not actually improve workers' situations. Sweatshops are a stage in every country's economic development, and worker conditions and wages can only improve with time and further advances. He also offers a way for activists to effectively speed this process and incentivize the payment of higher wages.
