Made in China

Today in Economics we watched a video. Always good right? In one clip it showed a factory room in India. Rows and rows of sewing machines filled the room, with tired looking workers working tediously on a garment. The owner couldn't always get constant electricity so it showed the lights continuously flickering from off to on. The workers continued to work in darkness as if nothing had even happened. When I looked at what they were sewing, it looked just like the shirts I see on the hangers when I go shopping. It then hit me that SOMEONE actually made my shirt that I am wearing right now. The tag we're so familiar with. Made in China. Who made it? Who knows, maybe they were sitting in a dim factory being paid poorly. I mean, there's nothing I can do about it. But it just made me think.
