Good Tidings To All (Except Wal-Mart and Their Chinese Suppliers)

Just in time for the holidays, Senator Byron L. Dorgan of North Dakota is getting up in Wal-Mart’s grill.
According to The New York Times, Dorgan said that Christmas tree ornaments sold at Wal-Mart Stores and other major retailers were made in a Chinese sweatshop employing workers as young as 12 and others who work more than 100 hours a week.
“There is virtually no enforcement anywhere on these issues,” said Dorgan.
