You know with all of this talk about how we need to help these poor farmers and countries with this unethical farming, it reminds me a little bit of the drug farming in South America. Americans still find, arrest, and try to stop these cocaine farmers from producing the drug materials. The American government also gave these farmers the option to plant other produce. However, our “aide” produced a bit of a controversy. Cocaine is what’s putting food on their family’s table, it’s what’s sending their kids to school. In this documentary that I was watching, the reporter asked if the farmer would switch to farming drugs to bananas and he said no. Many farmers feel this way because it’s harder to transfer and sell fruits and vegetables compared to drugs. I don’t agree with this, but it does open up questions about the other parties involved in this unethical work. Sure, everyone wants to work ethically and not have to open up sweat shops, but what would happen if we stop it completely? Are we really helping these people out? The answers to these touchy issues are never one hundred percent satisfying and neither is it easy to just switch. Don’t get me? Well, let’s say all these designer and clothing companies stop supporting sweat shops and they built their own for found better factories to produce their materials. Great, right? I think so! But, will the same people who worked for those sweat shops work in these new facilities or for that manufacturer? Will the commute be easier on them? Will they have to get some sort of education to get this job? Will they get money fast? Will the difference in the paychecks be that much better? To be quite honest, I think that for us to be completely ethical or try to be more ethical, we have to fix it from the root down and get these different perspectives.
