Let me rephrase it this way: DO you care about LBYM and ethics? Should it matter? Should we always be looking at price only?

Yes, ethics matter. And it's Living Below Your Means, not living at the absolute rock bottom possible, right?

I'll gladly pay a little more at a retailer who treats their employees fairly. And that includes spending more for goods that do not come from sweatshops in Indonesia.

Americans are truly the world's worst hypocrites when it comes to consumerism. We talk about how much we value things that are "American Made" but then we support companies shipping jobs overseas just so we can get socks for under $1 a pair, you know?
