Tip: ALL of your cheap goods come from low paid, and, likely, exploited labor. So what is better? Not buying it and denying these people a job to support their families?

This is veiled politics, plain simple...an easy way to throw criticism at China in a way that makes you look like an asshole if you protest against it.^D^

By not buying things from places that you actually don't need. Particularly every year or every other year. There are a ton of little things everyone can do that actually do make a difference. Half-assedly protesting out front of an Apple store with your Apple device sipping your Starbucks frappucino isn't one of them.

No Apple isn't the only company doing this but they want to be in the spotlight so they get the bullseye...for now. And if you can get them to cave, then other companies start falling like dominoes. And from those small steps you go from tht to bringing the work back here where it belongs. Not buying from overseas isn't our problem if it causes them unemployement of not, we have our shit to deal with here, of which we are currently failing miserably.

"Nobody wants to be nobody in America. Ed is the apotheosis of a prevailing American syndrome. It used to be that someone became famous because they were special. Now people are considered special just for being famous. Fame, itself, is its own virtue.
