Labor 411 believes that by making the choice to spend our money on American made products and services by workers who are treated fairly, and paid living wages, we are helping to protect the middle class, strengthen our national economy and build a stronger America. We are here to make your consumer buying choices easy and fun. We call this ethical consumerism, and we hope you will join us in making every-day decisions count.
