    Yes, it would certainly be great if U.S. companies could take a stand against unsafe factories.

    Unions did that a long time ago.

    Now we must stand firm against the many conservatives who want to destroy unions and such progressive things as OSHA, EPA, and regulations intended to protect workers.

    No Unions -- No safety.

    Businesses are in business to make money,
    not keep people safe and healthy.

    That's why Compnaies don't like Unions.

    A century after the Triangle Shirtwaist fire, the only thing that has changed is the location.

    American retailers need to demand contracts with manufacturers with real teeth, genuine audits of working conditions, and serious consequences for breach of contract. Withholding payment for products produced in unacceptable conditions and blackballing noncompliant factories from any future contracts would be a good start.
