sweatshop protestors piss me off

first off, sweatshop labor is an american term.

secondly, people who work in 'sweatshops' would rather work there than in fields or prostitution or anything else because of cleaner, safer, and higher paying environment.

half the protestors go to harvard, which is all BS in itself because they're all rich ****s.

economically speaking, protesting the products loses more money and jobs than buying more.

and this is coming from someone who is generally liberal.

there. my 2 cents because we had some protestors out today and i went off on them.

Re: sweatshop protestors piss me off

umm i agree but disagree, I work for a American owned company ( my other job not the FD) and we make some really high end parts, and now with the market over seas they drive our price down = i make less and less, and the quality is going down hill when other "outside People" make it. The company I work for started after WWII (1947 ish) going 6 days a week day and night shifts. now we are down to 5 days a week, 5:30 till 5:30ish. we make American parts for American used items (sorry i have to keep it light on what I say) I am the guy that wear most American made items.

Re: sweatshop protestors piss me off

I agree that it's sad that these younger kids have to work in these "sweatshops." But many Americans are naive enough to think that they would be so much better off not doing so. You've got to remember... these kids aren't being forced to work for these places by the companies that own them. It isn't slavery. They have to work there in order to help provide for their family as much as possible.

So what happens if we successfully protest these companies and they close these sweatshops? These kids lose their jobs and no longer have a way of helping to put food on the table. It is a very unfortunate fact, but without these sweatshops, many of these families would not be able to survive.

Some people just need to open their eyes and try to think for themselves for just a second. Perhaps instead of pressuring companies to close these places, we should pressure them to take some of the profit that the big-wigs are pocketing to raise wages and improving working conditions in these places. Imagine what one million USD of profit a year from one of these multi-million (possibly even billion) dollar corporations could do to improve these people's lives.

But oh well... what do I know? I'm just a dumb redneck from Alabama, almost forgot my place there for a minute.
