Should you buy from sweatshops?

PRO:  Sweatshops are better than the alternatives:
When workers voluntarily take a job they demonstrate that they believe the job is the best alternative available to them – even when that job is unsafe and the pay is very low compared to wages in the United States. That’s why economists with political views as divergent as Paul Krugman and Walter Williams have both written in defense of sweatshops.

Sweatshop jobs are often far better than the vast majority of jobs in the countries where they are located.

CON:  6 minute video showing Harvard students protesting "exploitation."
