A group of students rallied on UK's campus on Wednesday against sweatshops.

'United Students Against Sweatshops' wants the university to affiliate itself with the Workers' Rights Consortium,' which monitors factories that make college apparel.

Currently, UK uses the Fair Labor Association.

The student group claimed the Fair Labor Association is controlled by the factories themselves.

The group wants to make sure UK isn't getting its apparel from a sweatshop.

After the rally, the student group met with UK President Eli Capilouto to talk about their cause, concerns and desires.
