The reader will find that, while not an exhaustive look, the article does offer significant insight into the referenced issue. On the whole well-sourced, although some readers may find the use of anonymous quotes problematic. However, it can be expected that the quoted workers may have purposefully not wanted to attach themselves to the piece. Balanced overall but a conspicuous lack of quoted comment from the accused company may be a concern for some readers. A worthwhile read particularly for those interested in the issues discussed. Prospective readers will come away better informed about a much debated topic.

Multiple quoted sources and great context included. Sadly, no comment from the supplier was included, which leaves room for dispute; however, overall informative with very little bias.

This is an investigative article that is able to gather quotes from many of the workers at these factories to corroborate these allegations. The WRC filed the report and the author was able to get a response from head management at Levi and Wrangler as to how they're addressing this.

This story is sooo wrong on so many levels that it is great to see all these points coming to the surface. The article offers a good context and it's nice to see clearer the points of the investigation in process.

This is a great investigative story highlighting sexual misconduct at various jean manufacturers. I'm glad this story is getting out there and hope to see follow-ups to this story. I could, however, only give the article 4 stars because so many of the quotes included in the piece are anonymous or without sources. I tend to believe this illegal activity is occuring, but I wish there was a way to provide more evidence to support the claims.
