In Sweden, IKEA's factory workers are paid $19 per hour and get five weeks of paid vacation every year. In America? Not so much.

Well is what they want, to have the American workers working at 3rd world levels and we've a Government that has done nothing to protect us. Suppose it is our punishment for asking for safe working conditions, and for the factories to keep the environment clean.

This shows how much our government is protecting us! Not so much! Now that Repugs are on a union busting, killing collective bargaining agenda, workplace protection and benefits will only get worse.

Thanx all and Dandelion, too early for stars. This Ikea situation is sadly quite typical in the corporate arena. I'm still reeling from Cal's Hormel story. I'm surprised I was able to sleep.

Signed and noted, with the comment that I have bought furniture at IKEA in the past, but won't anymore unless they ditch their anti-union behavior and resolve the safety and discrimination issues in favor of the workers.

If you want to do business in the US you have to follow US norms. The tiny minority of consumers willing to pay more for something else cannot keep the business alive.

This petition is insane and counterproductive. IKEA pays people according to the marketplace, it also sells it's products according to the marketplace and is one of the most fantastic resources for buying good design at a very low price (which benefits far more people by saving them money). You people will not rest until the entire world is made up of mediocrity and you are not intelligent enough to realize the damage you cause.
