Multinationals take note,
By A Customer
This review is from: No Logo: No Space. No Choice. No Jobs (Paperback)
The book is an excellent example of people power. How activists can take a stand against the take over of our towns, lives etc. by the multinationals who are exploiting workers all over the world. In answer to one review, those who buy from the Internet do not need companies to use sweatshop labour to maintain a level of product standard! Companies do not have to pollute or exploit for you to know their product is on the market! If you think it is okay to pay workers $2 (workers are on the breadline) for a 16-hour day to make shoes you are selling for $130 in the US than don't read this book. NO LOGO is intelligently written and carefully researched. Although I do agree with other reviewers that the publishers probably gave Ms Klein too high a word count thus forcing the 'padding'. There can be trade without exploitation, animal cruelty and taking over educational establishments and public space, Ms Klein advocates Government intervention in the form of laws (Self imposed 'codes of conduct' are not going to work, too many companies are 'green washed' already) to enforce ethical practices for the labour force and in the work place. If you are worried about the march of globalisation read this book.
