Not just what country they were made in, but the actual people who worked on them. Maybe it would be children, or someone in a foreign country trying to live on 60 cents a week. Or maybe it would be someone working in an American factory for $12 an hour. Would you want to know either way? Question Who's Online | Find Members | Private Messages

If you had the chance to know exactly who made all your clothes, would you want to know?

17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/14/04 - 8:35:00 PM EST (GMT-5)
I had to do a 10page research paper on child labor last year...not a fun business
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/14/04 - 8:51:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
I could careless as long as the clothes look right and fit right.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/14/04 - 8:54:36 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd rather not.

It'd only make me feel guilty for wearing them, because chances are they were made by some poor, mistreated Asian kid.

17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/14/04 - 8:59:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way. I wouldn't wanna know that crap. Just like I don't wanna know who made my shoes, my necklace, my VCR, my computer, my refrigerator, my bedsheets, my TV...
I don't want to know.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Tuesday 12/14/04 - 9:14:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, because I would want to make sure they're not underpaid or child workers.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/16/04 - 2:53:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
itde be interesting to know, yeah
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/27/04 - 10:57:26 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, I probably would not be able to sleep at night.
17 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Monday 12/27/04 - 11:00:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
No not really. That just doesn't interest me.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 12/31/04 - 2:31:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
Part of me says no because I really don't care, but the other part says yes because then you'll know for sure what companies use kids and such and you could boycott those brands.
17 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Friday 12/31/04 - 2:36:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Probably not - I think I'd have to become a naturist...
17 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Tuesday 2/22/05 - 1:44:51 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ignorance is bliss in this case.
17 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Tuesday 4/26/05 - 2:55:13 AM EST (GMT-5)
yes. So nobody would buy Dysney products anymore.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 9:22:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
I could care less. My clothes are proably mass made by machinery- not people.
16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 5/29/05 - 9:23:58 PM EST (GMT-5)

16 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 5/30/05 - 3:57:07 AM EST (GMT-5)

Ditto

I still wouldn't like the whole sweat shop thing though. Even though I am a massive fan of nike and lacoste footwear which both bear the labels saying 'Made in Taiwan/China'
