Chasing low prices?

My wife and I recently watched a pair of documentaries (on Netflix, but you might find them elsewhere) that are together a VERY complete look at the problem Americans are causing for themselves in the jobs markets.

The documentaries are titled, “The True Cost” (which is about the fashion industry and the entire supply line that provides clothes for Americans to buy/wear) and “Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price”.

Both documentaries earn a 5-star (out of a possible 5 stars) rating from us!  Highly recommended viewing.
