Wal-Mart workers will have union...in China

Sounds good, right? Until you learn that the All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU) was established by the Chinese Communist Party. According to Wang Zhaoguo, President of the ACFTU, the union has been putting pressure on Wal-Mart to allow its workers to join the union.

In my opinion, no store in America should be allowed to put a label on its products that says "Union Made" unless that union can be certified as having 51% or more of its components made by union workers, whose unions are totally democratic. Something tells me the Chinese Communist Party doesn't let the ACFTU operate freely and democratically.
