Sweat Free Houston is a coalition of labor, religious, and other civic organizations that want the City of Houston to pass a “sweat free” ordinance.  The objective of the ordinance is to ensure low-bid garment contracts do not encourage manufacturing in sweatshop conditions, and to level the playing field for public contracts by eliminating sweatshop exploitation as a competitive advantage.
