The holiday season is upon us, Hanukkah begins tomorrow and there are only 21 shopping days before Christmas. In this season of spending and gift giving, economic and social justice groups are asking consumers to pay closer attention to where and how their gifts are made. Many products on the market these days are produced overseas, sometimes under the worst sweatshop conditions.
