Credit for?

Have you ever thought about who gets the credit? 
Who gets the credit for the bread you eat?
Who gets credit for your Nike shoes?
Who gets credit for those help numbers?
All these companies and so many more get all the credit.
Have you ever thought about the poor people getting
less than 30 cents an hour in the beating sun,
to make YOUR food, YOUR shoes, to help YOU!
The next time you get make a sandwich
or put on your shoes,
think about all the people struggling to provide for you.
A person not even your own race or speaking your own language,
providing for you...
Think about it.

    Sadly this is how the economic world works Kirsten, yet we still buy the goods. Your words do make us think though >> James
