Black Friday's Curse - it's not business, it's personal
Those who decry child labor in China and jobs lost overseas would do well to stay home on Black Friday. The consumer demand for ever-increasing discounts on goods means profit-hungry retailers seek more concession from wholesalers who demand lower prices from suppliers who seek out vulnerable and desperate individuals to take jobs that pay less in a week than your Starbucks cost this morning as you brag about your bargains.
Make a difference. Dare to demand ethical products and start looking out for "the least of these."
