Computer Accessories and Child Slave Labor

Today I read an article about forced child labor in China.

Now I just purchased a new Logitech mouse (around $75 after taxes) because my 7 year old Microsoft mouse is getting old and cranky (his right button stopped working properly).

After reading that all of these mice are being manufactured using mostly female children who work 12-15 hours a day, 6-7 days a week, I cannot use this mouse that I purchased in good conscience. They are basically slaves and slavery is wrong. Outsourcing slavery for profit is wrong.

I will be returning my mouse tomorrow (hopefully I can find a suitable alternative)
