Sweatshop Warriors: Immigrant Women Workers Take On the Global Factory (book)
by Miriam Ching Yoon Louie
Honestly, I do not know much about Appalachia. And, I have never seen the term "Breeders" before my visit to your site. I must wonder how a group of "SMILEY FACES" on a shirt can be construed to represent specific HUMANS from any given location in the USA. It is all, frankly, beyond me. Perhaps there are people out there in the population for whom "SMILEY" ABUSE is a cardinal sin (or a legally punishable offense). Obviously, the "SMILEY" was forced into it's present service by the advertising wizards employed by WAL*MART. Further, I am impressed that the self-ascribed supporters of the law avoiding, EPA ignoring, below-middle-class employee abusing, uber-Christian identifying corporation known as WAL*MART can't, for the most part, submit correspondence that is not ridden with swearing and profanity. The facts are that WAL*MART's actions are bad for the communities into which they move. They are deceitful, harmful and untrustworthy business operators. That some can not (or do not want to) understand this does not make the reality any less real. I stopped visiting this purveyor of low-cost crud a long time ago, in favor of my locally run and owned stores. These establishments pay their taxes (no deals from the local Government). They put the money they earn back into the local economy to drive growth. My money does not leave the state, or country, to be used for other's gain. It benefits me to give my local shops my patronage.
