If I read correctly, those that are able to work in that country earn a little over one dollar a day. And they'll do unsafe work because there are not alternates to choose from. It would help if the U.S. and other 'customer countries' of countries such as these would develop a tariff like structure that took into account whether the labor used to produce the goods we're importanting was paid for fairly, or whether it was near-slave labor such as what we've seen here in Bangladesh. Slave labor shouldn't be acceptable anywhere, and its use certainly shouldn't be given power by the wealthier countries. Slavery is wrong, even if it's a corporation using it.

Dear DVD

We are not a customer country. We are an "investor country". That is why we can pay the prices we pay at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and others.
