Shocker -- WalMart Investigated For Using Sweat Shops
I don't shop at Wal-Mart. Do you?

WalMart Investigated For Possibly Using Sweat Shops
http://www.wmdt.com/topstory/displaystory.asp?id=7341

Wal-Mart is facing some heat this holiday season. A National Labor Committee report says some Christmas ornaments supplied to Wal-Mart are made in China under sweatshop conditions. The workers are allegedly forced to handle toxic chemicals without any protective gear.

Some lawmakers say the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is brain dead in their monitoring. Wal-Mart is investigating.
