The Kardashians care way too much about their products to abuse their workers!

As reported by Radar Online, a human rights advocacy group claimed that Kim, Khloe and Kourtney's merchandise was produced under horrible conditions in China. According to the nonprofit, a clothing manufacturer once used to produce the Kardashians' apparel paid its workers only 8 cents per garment.

Star magazine and Radar went so far as to claim that the factory employees manufacturing K-Dash by Kardashian label, the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle, which was cofounded by Kim, worked up to 84 hours a week in non-air-conditioned facilities earning $1 per hour.
