Where did you get this information? I buy stuff like knickers, socks, tights and some jumpers at Primark and Spiderman gets all his gear there but have always been afraid that they must be doing some exploitation of workers because the prices are so incredibly cheap. I saw a tv special about them and it said something like they refused to sign some sort of trade agreement that other companies were signing saying "we already have fair trade--we don't need to sign your agreement as we have our own" but refused to elaborate on what their fair trade agreement was. I am hazy on the details. But I remember feeling a bit sad when I heard it as it sounded dodgy.

I hope you are right.
