Nike keeps the workers working, with an allocation of capital no greater that four bits a head.
Correction: 20¢ an hour (The Nation, 20 December 1999, p. 8).
: Y'all are forgetting that in countries like Indonesia, where Nike sets up (sweat)shop, the rights of the workers to unionize, or even demand decent conditions in a non-union environment, are quashed by armed thugs in the employ of the governments, and often nourished by corporate and U.S. dollars. McArthur-Freeport in Indonesia and Gulf Oil in Nigeria are two examples of corporations which had a direct hand in the deployment of soldiers against poor workers; massacres followed.
No, comrade, I'm NOT forgetting that at all---hell, I still believe in Lenin's imperialism thesis.
Doc, on the other hand supports a 'Reaganesque foreign policy', so he'll just cheer when he reads your post. . .
