Lest We Forget, Where Our Stuff Comes From

by Abby Zimet
Protests by workers at Bangladesh's many garment factories are spreading (http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5hhIRUDyC7cW5l1VKIHcvgOvDJIwQ), even as riot police fire tear gas and water cannons at crowds of up to 20,000 people, including children. The workers are protesting conditions and wages, which now average $25 a month for sewing clothes for the western likes of Wal-Mart. One more reason among so many not to shop there.
