Thanks Cal, there are so many reasons not to give Wal-mart our financial support. They don't care about animal abuse perpetrated by their meat suppliers, they abuse the rights of their workers, they won't buy anything locally produced because it;s too much trouble...

This is a no brainer. Why haven't these companies already taken steps to ensure the safety for all workers is beyond me.

Signed and noted! I hope the retailers who make their large profits at the expense of the blood, sweat and tears of the people who work in these sweat shops will "work with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina Wajed’s government in Bangladesh to allow workers to form unions and improve safety and health inspections in [their] supply chain," as stated in the petition!

Noted and Definitely Signed for the workers of these sweat factories in Bangladesh. I also would like to see Government in Bangladesh allow workers to form unions and this would help insure safety and health inspections.
I feel some of these Big Corps. are a little late at doing the right thing, and I intend to keep boycotting their stores, and their brands on the list that I have. I will buy locally crafted and made items from smaller stores here, even though I will probably pay more money - a few dollars is well worth it to me.
Thank You Cal.
