Do you guys know where to find a list of clothing/shoe companies that do not have horrible labor problems? How can you tell when a product is made in a sweatshop-free environment?
Thanks in advance.

RIP Wade Belak
RIP Derek Boogaard

Seriously. I'm not being a patriotic American (or xenophobic redneck, depending on your political tastes). I'm just saying that I don't know what other countries have for rules or for labeling. For example, does "Product of France" mean it was made there or did they outsource?
"Made in the USA" means just that.
And you'll be a patriotic American (or xenophobic redneck, as you wish).
I would assume that the same could be applied to Canada, but I don't know for sure.
My money on the board pledge:
$1 for each goal scored by a player after whom I have named a hamster.
An additional $5 for each hat trick scored by a player after whom I have named a hamster.
An additional $10 if any of the above goals is the GWG goal that gives us the series win.
An additional $50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for a SO by Jimmy.
Hamsters' names (current players in RED): Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik
Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert
Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan
Andrew Patrick Ian Todd
And introducing: Jordin Damien Gustav James
TOTAL SO FAR: $36

Products being made in Asia and shipped back to the US effects our jobs and our economy in the long run. Sure one person probably won't make a difference, but it's still a good gesture to buy products made here by hard working americans trying to scrape together a living.

Still everything I've heard about how they actually treat the employees making the garments and it being made in the U.S. sounds legit.
