Sweatshops in third world countries have been in the spotlight on and off for years, yet the Sweatshop Deadly Fashion reality TV show may bring it back to the forefront in a big way. It revolves around three young Norwegian fashion bloggers who are challenged to live and work in a sweatshop based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia for a month.
Right away, the small group is faced with the harsh realities of such a lifestyle. Sweatshop Deadly Fashion shows just in the first couple episodes how the "workers [are] caught in a vicious cycle of poverty: low, low wages; insane working hours; and insufficient living conditions," writes Refinery29. Through their firsthand experience, Norway is also given an in-depth glimpse that will shock them to their core. Sweatshop Deadly Fashion is one reality show that will hopefully catch on in the rest of the world.
