I think the problem is that Americans think they need closets stuffed full of cheap clothes. What's wrong with having 2 or 3 pairs of jeans & a few t-shirts? If we bought fewer clothes that were made in the US & cost more, we wouldn't have to support all of these hazardous manufacturers overseas. Have you ever seen pictures of closets in Europe (ie. Ikea)? They're small, because Europeans don't think they need multiple pairs of everything.

All imported garments are required to have the country of origin on the label. If you are concerned about working conditions in a given country, don't buy it.
