Ralph Lauren backlash

I was delighted this week to see how much coverage and subsequent backlash, Ralph Lauren received this week for creating Olympic uniforms for the USA team in China. Whereas in the past, this news would have been barely registered., Americans nationwide were outraged and demanded Ralph Lauren to correct their actions. As a result of all the attention, Ralph Lauren issued a statement that the Olylmpic uniforms used for the USA team in 2014 will all be made in America. This is a huge victory and shows how voices united in a common goal can produce massive change. I feel the day that Ralph Lauren and other successful clothing companies commit to making all their clothes in the USA is very near. I can hardly wait!
