Pittsburgh City Council does the right thing!

Great news. Thanks President Burns.

When a visitor to Pittsburgh from Bangladesh arrives later this month to share insights of work in the apparel factories, Pittsburgh City Council will host a post-agenda meeting to receive the testomony. This is wonderful and just what was hoped for as the next step.

In Pittsburgh, we've pushed to have our purchasing departments go out of its way to obtain items with public dollars that are sure to be supplied from factories where the workers have human rights upheld. We don't want to buy from sweatshops.

But, this isn't happening as promised.
