…You know all those toxic corrosive materials we use, with the WARNINGS on them, don’t touch this, don’t inhale its fumes, use a mask, use goggles? And the toxic building materials that exude formaldehyde. And paint removing chemicals and so on–what’s it like in the factories where they make it? What are the rules in that place? “We crack a window and we carry out people when they get sick and put them on the pile out back”? What’s it like where they make Crazy Glue?
I am mostly thinking of outsourced product manufacturing. What are conditions like in the overseas factories for products like this, that we routinely use. Or perhaps in parts of Texas and Mississippi.
And what of their effluents? How deeply flows their pollutants?
