As the summer trickles away, the young ones start packing their newly-purchased backpacks and lunchboxes with all of the supplies and goodies they will need for that annual journey known as “back to school.” That’s right. Most of you reading this have already sent your young ones back or are just about to. To make your job easier, Labor 411 has compiled a list of school supplies and lunch box edibles made by ethical companies who treat their employees with dignity and give them a voice on the job. So as you help your kids stock up for school, make the union choice and help us build a stronger America.
