Sweatshops: Good or Bad? Recently, with all these threads about Bush, I may have gone too far in criticizing our Glorious, Divine Emperor in the Whitehouse, and I think some people may feel I have slipped too far to the left. Therefore, I feel the need to firmly re-assert myself as a heartless, exploitative, capitalist pig. With that in mind, the topic is about: Sweatshops! (Where a sweatshop is defined as the production facility for a major corporation, located in a poor, third world country, that offers low wages and quite possibly employs children. Forced labor is specifically excluded from this definition.) Good or bad? That is, if we abolished these so-called sweatshops in a country, would this benefit the average citizen of said country?
