Sweatshops? Umm...no. That's a pretty ridiculous comparison. You have fat, happy workers with benefits who could run out and find a job elsewhere without the faintest possibility of starving.
Suppose we forced WalMart to pay all their workers double wages and let them goof off on company time. Gee golly, I do believe prices would go up. *Your* prices. *You'd* be the one subsidizing the comfortable lifestyle of the college dropouts and the people without a work ethic.
