A new website is being launched to ensure the many thousands of sweat shop workers whose efforts in subsidising the profits of multi-national corporations around the globe, are not wasted in a blither of fake goods.
The website, called Brand-i, aims to frustrate online purveyors of counterfeit goods whose wares are single-handedly removing from manufacturing giants the exclusivity associated with kicking dirt in the eye of their factory employees.
A spokesman from one company said the site was a welcome development as it ensured that consumers had a method of confirming they were only going to be the the victim of corporate exploitation, rather than profitting the man on the street.
The spokesman revealed to reporters, 'This site is a major step in guaranteeing that our employees who work in the most horrendous of conditions are not swept aside by the constant flow of fake merchandise, often as high quality as what we produce.'
'Of course, there are some who say this trade in counterfeit goods often from the same countries as our factories is to do with the fact that we drive them to it by paying them appalling low wages, in conditions you wouldn't keep a repeat offending cat in.'
'But that's rubbish.'
'We don't let them out long enough to achieve such monumental feats.'
The spokesman went on to claim that the poor working conditions were misconstrued by the general public.
'It's all about team building, it bonds them.'
'We unite them by giving them similar goals, similar dreams to line our pockets to the point of bursting whilst they hate everything we stand for.'
'A bit like the Catholic Church.'
