Ministers are to tackle the growth in sweat shops head on, with legislation promised to outlaw the practice and sale of sweat.
"This is an iniquitous trade and should be stamped out immediately." A spokesman for the Business Secretary Vince Cable told reporters.
The latest figures from the Confederation of British Industry showed that in the last 5 years, there has been a 100 percent increase in the number of stores selling bottled sweat.
"This has got to stop and we're going to take action to ban these stores and the factories where the sweat is produced."
It's understood the majority of the shops sell sweat and perspiration collected from young women in saunas, to high-powered city bankers who have no idea what an honest day's work is like or what it's like to break a sweat while earning not very much.
"We've gathered evidence from across Europe that women are being paid as little as £6 for a bottle of their sweat, which is then sold to a clientele consisting of mainly middle-aged men, for as much as £100. While the entrepreneurial nature of this trade can't be faulted, it's the environment in which the product is made that's hurting so many people, especially as the webcam to the one I usually use being offline at the moment."
