I wonder will we see 'FairTrade' electronic equipment at any stage?
It would be nice to know at least that the workers get enough to live comfortably.
There is a very respected German magazine, Stiftung Warentest, that tests things (anything and everything). They do it very methodically and scientifically and give very detailed results and background info etc. Recently they tested running shoes - but they also 'tested' the conditions in the factories where the shoes were made (mostly Vietnam IIRC). Nike came bottom of that list, Addidas at the top - I know the next time I buy a pair of 'runners' who I'll be going with if at all possible, and who I'll definitely be avoiding.
It would be harder to do that with computers because the parts are made in so many different factories, but it would be nice if the computer assemblers made an effort to ensure that conditions arent the pits. Would be good publicity for them too, but I imagine they wont do it till the pressure is on...
