I buy a great deal of my clothing, particularly for my boys from department stores like Kmart, Target and Big W. And I love a great deal, which you often get at these stores.
But at what cost should I get my bargain?

I am happy to pay a couple of dollars extra if it means the Bangladeshi people can work in safety. I mean, a $3 pair of shorts for Master 4? I can swing $5 AS LONG AS IT GOES TO THE BANGLADESHI WORKERS, and not into a department stores profit margin.
Boycotting the companies will only endanger the Bangladeshi workers employment.
So click this link and petition the companies, particlarly Big W and Cotton On, to take action.
