Labor Day reminds me how to respect the laborer
The supply chain is too diverse. And some out-of-state/country companies have invested in the people around me to make their product, like the Honda plant just outside of my city. What can I do? I can become more aware about where my stuff comes from, so that I know why I’m making the decisions that I am. I should require a company be able to tell me where their product comes from. This way, I’m accountable for my actions.
Consumer accountability is empowering and it respects the laborer
Accountability gives our lives meaning. Without this, we are just consumers, and we cease to become members of a community. As society becomes more complex, we must keep this power, because otherwise we are losing our freedom of choice and our connection to other people. And I don’t think anyone of us wants that.
