Conroe to Penryn
A New Era?

The Way the World Works

Amir talks about cheap labor and sweat shops. He quickly makes the point:

[...] the sad reality is that if people — without physical coercion — enter into a contract to work in a sweatshop then that means that they are deriving some benefit from that transaction; ergo, working in a sweatshop is preferable to not working in a sweatshop (being unemployed, starving, or turning to crime to earn a living).
