You proved my point for me. You go out of your way to purchase American made goods, and it is the American companies that we are hiring the illegals! Ever shopped at Walmart? They have plenty of cases of using illegal immigrants.
While I mentioned child and overseas labor, that was more a rant than anything. The fact of the matter is, no one cares that illegals are picking their produce, packaging their products.
Its easy to blame the government or "big business" because they are large organizations. Its like blaming society for your problems. It makes you feel good because you are targeting your emotions toward something, but on the other hand, you are blaming absolutely no one!
No one wants to take a look in the mirror and admit to themselves that on some level they support these things because that would require them to change. Why should I stop shopping at Walmart? I would have to pay more to go to Ma and Pa's store down the street!!!
