H&M Is Giving Textile Workers A Raise

H&M Is Giving Textile Workers A Raise

Its goal is to give raises to over 850,000 of its workers by 2018. Helena Helmersson, the company’s head of sustainability, said that higher prices “might be a possibility,” though so far there has been no official decision to increase prices. Even if it does, it’s hard to imagine H&M ever becoming so expensive that it loses is standing as one of the most affordable places to shop.

This morning I got up early and went grocery shopping before work.

And then something weird happened: I had the best time. Turns out the early morning hours at the grocery store are like a whole different world. A world I highly recommend venturing into if you get the chance. Here’s why: Keep reading »

The seemingly innocuous topic of Jay Z’s limited edition holiday collection in collaboration with Barneys turned rife with controversy in the past few weeks after the upscale NYC department store was accused of two separate racial profiling incidents in the last month alone. Everyone from Jon Stewart to Andre Leon Talley criticized the hip-hop mogul’s decision to go forth with the high-profile partnership, even after he announced that 100 percent of the proceeds from the collection would go to his Shawn Carter Scholarship Foundation for low-income students.

Not all is lost to the Grinch this holiday season: Black Friday deal-hunters seem to be camping out earlier every year, and most major stores are starting the shopping frenzy early in the morning on Thanksgiving Day. Well, finally there’s some sanity this year: Costco, Nordstrom and BJ’s Wholesale Club refuse to take part in that fun-sucking disaster.

“Our employees work especially hard during the holiday season, and we simply believe that they deserve the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with their families,” Paul Latham, the company’s Costco’s VP for membership and marketing, told The Huffington Post. “Nothing more complicated than that.” Keep reading »
