Labor Market

I purchased a new pair of jeans Saturday. I got them on sale. I think it's ridiculous that the retail price for jeans starts at $60. If clothing manufacturers are going to chain some 4 year kid to a sewing machine in an Indonesian sweat shop and pay him four cents a day, then these companies should pass the saving on to us. If they're going to skimp on labor then I don't want to pay more than five dollars for a pair pants. Otherwise what's the point of expliotation?
