    So it's pretty depressing some of the poor working conditions suffered by overseas manufacturers of our computers, iPads, cell phones etc. we need a store that sells ethically made stuff, where workers get a decent wage and work normal hours in safe environment with good ventilation etc.

    I guess enforcing it would be the difficulty and the rising prices of the items. I'm sure the sweatshops would bring out the "good silverware" when the guest inspectors from overseas arrived.

    Something's gotta happen though because using the products of slavery is very bad karma.
