A popular underhanded move by fast fashion companies is to employ cheap labor from sweatshops on islands within the U.S territories due to their own independent regulations and labor practices that allow more flexibility to these brands to plaster Made In USA on their tags to “convey” the illusion of a more sustainable production

Generally there’s 2 legal ways around that.
