My Mood:
Thumbs down opinions on this article about child labor and buying in the USA?

So I was reading this article http://www.mothering.com/articles/gr...junk_toys.html
and It really made me think that I should be buying only in the US and our toy buying. We buy most toys and things used or get them from other people, but I have a hard time even justifying that after reading this article! Wow, I feel so ignorant!

Anyway, I was wondering opinions on this and also what you all do. I don't want to support an American company that doesn't have a problem letting children make their products. Man, these companies make America look very bad!

Also, anyone know where I can find more info. on which companies use child labor or overseas workers to make their products and which countries use children. Does China use children? This article really opened my eyes!
