The word "sweatshop" comes solely from our ivory-tower position, which we only hold because of the "sweatshops" of those who came before us. It also comes from blatant Socialism.

Take the Nike factory in Taiwan. They call it a sweatshop, but if they really treat the workers so badly, then why do people work there? Why are Nike jobs coveted? Because the truth is, Nike for the first time is allowing people there to be virtually guaranteed of three meals a day, a roof over their heads, and some are even able to afford cars for the first time.
