God Hates Shrimp

Just saw a report on CNN about how our State Department might be a wee bit annoyed at forced labor in the shrimp industry in countries like Thailand. It's possible some industries are more amenable to this kind of thing, and it's also possible that human rights groups will focus on particular items as a way of focusing attention, but more generally if we trade with countries with shitty human rights and labor laws, this is in the "to be expected" column.
