We had the same thing during our industrial revolution in the US- people working for slave wages in factories with no safety rules or regulations (like the Triangle Fire in Chicago). After numerous deaths and accidents, unions rose up against the employers demanding some humanity- in the 1840s, some states started limiting child's shifts in coal mines to 10 hours a day. Thank goodness we've come further, but we're sliding backwards.

Why do ALL of the stories mention Walmart when Penneys and other stores use the same "factories" or their merchandise. It is almost like a vendetta and that Walmart is the ONLY store in the USA to do this. I find it difficult to find Made in USA garments in any store that I shop in.
