2 Factory Rules! 1.Each day is 3 minutes – you must work for the entire 5 minutes, non-stop. Anyone who isn’t working will be punished! 2.Each night is also 3 minutes. You can choose to either work overtime during this or you can decide to give your team a rest. 3.As a production line you will each be given a different task to do to produce the clothing. Only finished products can be sold to the factory owner and these will not be accepted if they are not completed to the highest standards! 4.You will be paid 100 rupees for every dress that you produce. Money can be collected from the factory owner at the end of each day shift. 5.During the day and night your team may be given consequence cards – read these carefully and ensure you deal with what is being asked! You can also use your wages to pay for education... ©Teaching Geography Summer 2014 The sweatshop production game Spencer

4 Education: 1. Secondary Education (costs 400 rupees) – Once this has been purchased, your team can sit on chairs rather than on the floor. 2. College Education (costs 600 rupees) – Now you have a college education you can earn double the amount of money you used to earn for every t-shirt you produce as you’re more highly skilled. 3. University Education (cost 1000 rupees) – Your team no longer has to work in the factory. You will earn 400 rupees per day as you manage the other workers in the factory. ©Teaching Geography Summer 2014 The sweatshop production game Spencer
