Also, how come my US branded jeans are made in Pakistan but the US want to bomb the crap out of Pakistan?


Short answer $$$. Longer answer would be that the US government can't dictate where a corporation sets up factories or the people(directly). If they could they probably wouldn`t be getting made there.

In the 1800s in Britain there were cotton mills and garment factories where people worked their fingers to the bone until they dropped from exhaustion, for very poor wages. Children as young as eight were employed for pennies a week. Some of those buildings are still standing, the others didn't fall down, they were demolished. This is a whole new level of hell. Also, how come my US branded jeans are made in Pakistan but the US want to bomb the crap out of Pakistan?

@madduck @ferdyfred

Same here, i'd add that i find it insane to pay for the advertisement campaign, and the oppertunity to become a walking bilboard. What the ? On the other hand i`d be happy to pay extra knowing it was made by people who have good working conditions/decent pay.
(like max havelaar, but that`s only food)

I buy virtually everything I wera secondhand. Most of it is very high quality- firstly because I like good stuff and this is the only way I can afford it- but more importantly, it lasts- some of my clothes are more then 20-30 years old and still in good wearable condition. cheap, disposable fashion to feed a growth economy- to make us keep spending. i know people who buy clothes every weekend- and they pay a pound or two for a jumper. It is so wrong, as this is what we cause to happen. If we all paid a significant amount more, bought high quality garments made to last perhaps this kind of tragedy would stop.
