the high costs of cheap clothing
I, for one, am way more than ready for a strictly "Made in America" store.
Where to begin? Our desire for cheap goods has driven garment manufacturing to countries that don't protect workers the way that the US does. Some will blame the unions for driving US manufacturing costs up. Garment workers in the US suffered under these conditions until a disaster resulted in a factory fire that killed many. Improved conditions resulted in increased costs. The rest is history. How sad. My heart is heavy for the Bangladesh garment workers.
"Our desire for cheap goods has driven garment manufacturing to countries that don't protect workers the way that the US does" -- some would say it was a desire for higher profits that drove manufacturing to third world countries
More people are killed and injured by selfish, reckless indifference than violence.
