Retailer Scorecard

This retailer scorecard is supposed to give an indication of the level of sweatshop abuse by suppliers of major retailers. Which it does... sort of. But how would you feel if you received an F in school this semester for work you did 3 or 5 years ago?

In fact, WM receives an F for contracting with almost all the companies that have had at least one "labor abuse"--and that abuse does not have to be at factories producing goods that actually bought by WM.

I'm all for looking at the labor conditions of sweatshop workers, but this methodology stinks.
