Everyday Low Prices

The NYTimes has a story on Jordanian sweatshops. Jones Aparrel, Wal-Mart and Target are all supplied by the problem factories.

From the NYTimes:
"These are the worst conditions I've ever seen," he said. "You have people working 48 hours straight. You have workers who were stripped of their passports, who don't have ID cards that allow them to go out on the street. If they're stopped, they can be imprisoned or deported, so they're trapped, often held under conditions of involuntary servitude."
Don't support slavery with your commerce.
