Sunday Salon – January 21, 2007

In our first hour…

Where did you buy your last new pair of jeans? No matter where you bought it, before it reached the store it’s "life" probably began in a factory in China… Micha Peled’s documentary "China Blue" goes into a jeans factory
in China and takes a look at the working conditions of the young women who make the jeans. The film brings up U.S.-China political and trade relations and economic issues, in addition to labor issues…
