Rutherford B. Hayes Sympathizes With Obama Sweat Shop Workers, Sort Of

Insty points to Jammie Wearing Fool, where sweat shop workers supporting the Obama campaign, unexpectedly, discover they are in a sweat shop:

A $95 sweatshirt currently being sold in President Obama’s campaign store is the work of Alexander Wang, a designer who’s facing a class action suit in federal court for allegedly running a sweatshop where garment workers were forced to work 100 hour weeks in a factory with conditions “comparable to those of third world countries” while being subjected to racial discrimination, verbal abuse and threats. C.K. Lee, the lead attorney representating the workers who are suing Mr. Wang told The Politicker he thinks the presence of the sweatshirt is “inappropriate.”

Read the whole thing. This blog was focused on capturing an important announcement from Rutherford B. Hayes:

Update: I guess the real question is whether Obama will go to Cuba for furniture to sell when the hoodie market is saturated.

    If I had a son, he would look like Rutherford B. Hayes.

    In a suit, not a hoodie.
