Kissing Up to the New Values

Keep an eye out for a new fashion clothing boutique called American Apparel. It's SO cool because there are no labels on the clothing, and the stores look like art galleries, and the owner tauts his commitment to American immigrant-made clothing for which he pays a living wage (although he not too welcoming of the union.)

I'm probably being too hard on this entrepreneur who's working hard to provide a high-value product. As quoted in the NY Times (free, registration required):

This is a new generation of young adults, They want what their parents wanted at that age, what kids always want: to have a beer, to smoke a joint, to go to a good movie, to party…. At the same time it doesn't feel good when their happiness is based on exploitation.
