*Oh man, if this is true (and it appears to be) people are getting creative in seeking assistance with their pleas for help. In this case, we hope it will work. An Arizona woman reached out to the media saying she found a note written in Chinese inside a brand new purse she bought at Walmart.
And boy, oh boy, once she got it translated, its contents were heartbreaking.
The note (shown in the video below), and found in the zipper section of a purse purchased at the Sierra Vista Walmart by Laura Wallace, appeared to be from a Chinese prisoner.
According to a Fox News report, Wallace had the letter translated three times, just to ensure its accuracy. The letter read:
“Inmates in the Yingshan Prison in Guangxi, China are working 14 hours daily with no break/rest at noon, continue working overtime until 12 midnight, and whoever doesn’t finish his work will be beaten. Their meals are without oil and salt. Every month, the boss pays the inmate 2000 yuan, any additional dishes will be finished by the police. If the inmates are sick and need medicine, the cost will be deducted from the salary. Prison in China is unlike prison in America, horse cow goat pig dog (literally, means inhumane treatment).”
Wallace told KVOA, “I’m very sure that that’s exactly what the note says.”
We know sweatshops exist. This is just another form of proof.
Our prayers are with these people.
