GUEST,ragdall BS: How many Mudcatters shop at Wal Mart? (125* d) RE: BS: How many Mudcatters shop at Wal Mart? 11 Apr 05


It isn't easy for two people to live on one old age pension. I shop at any store that has low prices, including Wal*mart. They sell the same brands as other stores, but the prices are lower.

One concept I'm having difficulty understanding is the belief that if we refuse to buy items produced by "slave workers" in an Asian country, it will improve the lives of those workers. If they lose the market for their goods, who will step in and pay the higher wages to those people and how?

North American trade unions are leading the campaign to urge consumers to boycott those goods and buy union made products. Would this not provide, or secure, more jobs for their union members, while denying the "slave laborers" the only livelihood that they have?
