    You know if we stopped buying products made by sweatshops then the workers would probably have their wages cut and of they shut down then the workers would probably have to work some place else with even less pay.

    This was a great read, I do want to add in a point or two though. The impact does go both ways. There are workers there that aren't happy with the cut weekly hours. There are many workers at Foxconn that not only want, but need, the extra hours to support themselves. There are always more than one perspective, it's what makes decisions difficult to make.
