New Resolution

After hearing about the tragic fire in Bangladesh, which took the lives of more than a hundred innocent girls, and having it traced to by (to me) reliable evidence that it can be traced to Walmart's customary attempts to pretend that their clothes are not made in sweatshops where young women work for as low as $2.40 per MONTH, I have resolved not to ever buy clothes again from any catalog, where almost every wearable item is marked (by U.S. law) "imported".  The singular one not so designated is not worth my time to look for it!

Sounds like a very wise decision!

Well said Phyllis. I totally agree with you.

Hi Phyllis!! I just saw by your comment on Mad Kane's Limerick blog that you are active again! How lovely! I hope you write one.

As to the sweatshops, I'm with you. It's confusing to know what to do, though, since the labourers themselves tell us not to stop buying sweatshop products or they'll have no income at all!
