Watch this: I'm too tired (and short on time) to go into excessive detail about why it is important to know what you're buying and where it comes from, but I think the video does a good job of explaining it. Feel free to do more research on the subject. It's not only Nike. Maybe you might check out other companies, such as HASBRO and its workers. Start a discussion about your thoughts. This guy (Jim Keady) is still hard at work to get LIVING WAGES for Nike sweatshop employees. These people deserve better. Here's and interesting statement on their Diversity & Inclusion page (Found under "Contact" on Nike's website): "Most companies embrace diversity. Not Nike. We soak it up. We squeeze it out. We want it to drip over everything Nike does. Because without diversity of opinion, diversity of background, diversity of perspective, the Idea grows fallow. Or worse, it vanishes altogether. The mission is to harness diversity and inclusion to inspire ideas and ignite innovation. And you know as well as anyone: if there is no Idea, there is no Nike." -Nike Do you see the irony in this? No. I'm not letting this thread die because of some current post overtaking it. BUMP.
