Link Review: redux

From time to time the editorial board here at MG...ifos takes a little time to introduce the 3 regular viewers of my blog to some of my favorite links (You do still visit my site every day, don't you Mom? Mom?). Today's link spotlight is Blackspot Anti-corporate Shoes.

Have you ever thought "Gee, it seems to me that corporations can be amoral, soul sucking, faceless entities that crush workers (but somehow, not upper management) underfoot while blindly seeking to increase the stock price in the next quarter. But is there any other way to build a company? Well, the people at Blackspot Shoes thought the same thing. They picked a sector where workers are exploited and started a company that paid workers a living wage, put the consumers in charge of the company's direction and kept upper management costs to a minimum.

The result? Well paid workers, a profitable company and a kick ass product.

What a perfect industry for such an undertaking. I checked out the pic of the Fair Trade Fest. I bet they get great weed.
