And Oh Yeah
I got the polo shirt in the mail today. It's nice and colory: "emerald green." It's tagged to a maker called "Outer Banks" and was hecho in Guatemala. For $14.65, I have a 100% cotton (the only way to go) polo shirt made by some sweatshop laborer in a country far, far away for probably about $2.00 (or 300 bazillion Zimbabwe dollars) and delivered into my waiting hands. Deal. I'll take two. If the coupon code were good for two.
Exploitative? Nah. It's $2.00 that the Guacamoleans wouldn't have had otherwise.
