Sweatshopping. At the risk of sounding naive and idealistic, it sickens me a little that we consider it okay that people have to do horrible jobs in horrible conditions just to support our consumerism.
Actually, what makes it worse is that the factories shown above seem to be pretty damn pleasant as far as those kind of environments go. What is wrong with us that we consider it okay for people to live like that, just to feed the machine and give us nice shoes? And where to start fixing it? I'm going to try looking for and buying goods (a) second-hand and (b) made on a small-scale.
