Default does ikea use sweatshops?

As an architecture student, the cheap yet innovative product design of ikea is one of my biggest influences. The problem though I am not aware if ikea uses sweatshops or not. I cant write about ikea in my papers if they do use sweatshops because i know for a fact my hippie professor would get pissed and lower my grade. so does anyone know if ikea uses sweatshops?

There are surely better ways you can find out about this.

But this isn't really about IKEA, it's about you craving attention. At least this time you didn't come to us with an imaginary cousin who committed suicide.

no i googled and nothing obvious popped up, but then i read a really long review of ikea and at the end it said they pay people in developing nations fair wages to keep their employees happy so no they dont use sweatshops, they also use wood from eco friendly sustainable forests. it just seemed like the information was being covered up and i wanted to know if anyone knew the info, but it turns out ikea just doesnt publicize the positive things it does for some reason.

end thread
