The Diary of The Girl in Chains

I have been working at a sweatshop for NIKE since I was 10. 6 years later, I am still here. I am working my hands to the bone for 12 hours a day. Soon I will be sold into of into prostitution. Hopefully it will be a better start for me. I have heard though that sometimes, girls die form passed on diseases at the age 18. I hope that I will be able to live more of a life. My mother died of a disease at the age of 21. She was sold into prostitution at 16 like me, so what will happen to me, Rose Kaan?

Why do I have to wake up at the normal time on my day off? It is incredibly irritating. A day off? You may be thinking, and yes, if we sew 500 footballs in 6 days, we can have a day off on Sunday. This is a rare thing, I mean, it must have been about 2 months since somebody in my factory has had a day off, as a day off involves a lot of hard work and such. I found out some disturbing information yesterday while sewing my footballs. The man who owns the factory that I work in, came around with a clipboard, and was inspecting certain girls. He inspected me. He left his clipboard without meaning to on my desk. It had a typed list on it. It said this;

The girls who are being sold into the 'GOOD TIME' company in three weeks.                                                                                       Mary Beth,                                                                                         Elizabeth Daren,                                                                                   Lila Good,                                                                                        Rose Kaan,                                                                                        Hilary White

My name was on this list. I am going to be sold into prostitution in a few weeks! I am shocked. I never knew that worker girls get sold into prostitution before! I went up to the woman who takes care of us, she was sold into prostitution about 3 odd years ago, and she was fired as she was lazy and unreliable in their exact words. I asked her what it was like to be working in prostitution, and she told me that it was terrible, being forced to have sex around 3 times a day, with whoever and without protection. If you became pregnant, it was your own fault, she told me. I was shocked, and I wanted to run and hide. I knew that becoming a prostitute was the only possible way of me making any money at all, so I sucked it all up and bravely packed my bags. I knew what was coming, but I had to hold my head high, and get on with my life.
