Things work the way it does  for a reason and that reason is us (the buyers).
We love to buy things cheap  in general to save money, well most of us! But we don’t automatically think when we buy it as to why it is cheap. To keep profits high and retail prices low, there are multiple hidden reasons that some companies and retailers don’t advertise along with the price. Just one of the ways is to the disadvantage of workers as cheap labor that ultimately was outsourced to another country. For the reason that the laws are less strict or protective and therefore are more easily exploited because they will take less than have nothing. Labor in developed countries is expensive for a reason and to give the same privileges to outsourced labor isn’t priority to profit hungry companies. But then we take the blame because we are the reason why it is this way. The idea is to be an advocate for fair trade or prevent exploitation of another’s countries environment and workers. Either we shop at Walmart or Walgreens, being informed about what products come from where and how, prevents economic gain to be one sided. Not just with countries but in social classes as well that there is an economic imbalance.
