Sweatshop Union is a Canadian hip hop collective, that came together in Vancouver, British Columbia in 2000. The members - Dirty Circus, Creative Minds, Innocent Bystanders, and solo artist Kyprios - create music with a "powerful, distinctive voice". Their music focuses on being "honest" — commenting on material ranging from the War in Iraq, the plight of the poor and working-class, to the negativity and misogyny of mainstream hip-hop.
