The real solution to factory human rights problems in the Big Red
QUOTE: Imagine if AT&T, Motorola, Wal-Mart, Sony, Philips, Deutsche Telekom in Germany and Telstra in Australia demanded improvement, this could make a world of difference for VTech’s exploited workers.
Far better: Imagine if ATT moved their factories back to Lansing, Michigan, Waco Texas, or other Stateside locations. Same for Walmart: Benton, ARK. Deutsche Telekom to some place in the former German DDR. Etc.
What a boon to the local economies.
The boards of directors of these global companies think with their bottom (line) instead of thinking about the people in their own countries. USA has over 10% unemployment, is bankrupt, and the Dollar is worthless. All because greed-driven companies have shifted their manufacturing to China.
Hell, they could even diversify their mfg operations to Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, etc. As well as their home countries.
American, I am told, has turned from a manufacturing economy to a service economy. Translation: we're all going to get rich by counting each other's money.
