Slave Labor — Do You Care?

An ad comes on on your Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or other digital feed and the product is attractive. You want to buy it, but you recently read an article that said the following:

 1. The company — talking to you Shein and others — is accused of using Uyghur “uncompensated labor.”

 2. The company is accused of paying workers $20 for an 18 hour day.

 3. The company is savaging the environment whilst making the product.

The product is attractive, attractively priced, and all it takes is a couple of clicks and it is on its way to you.

Do you care you’re buying a product with the above noted labor incorporated? Do you buy the product?

In the context of this conversation, I am certain your virtue bubbles to the surface and you say, “No way.” But is that true?

Bottom line it, Big Red Car

There is a lot of dicey stuff going on out there and it is very difficult to avoid it. It is a constant temptation, but it all starts with you.

Buy American.
