Perhaps they merely are no longer announcing the difference in blanks anymore, since it has been "Almost a month" since the change, and everyone should be well aware of it. To say the least, there were half a dozen shirts, including today's (too short) I would have bought in a heartbeat, had they not switched to sweatshop shirts.
Having been "Right sized" out of 2 jobs, and quitting before they had a chance to "Allow further explorations into expanding my career horizons external of the company infrastructure" a 3rd time, mixed with the fact I work for a call center where the biggest fear is having my job exported to a Southeast Asian country, means I will not support companies that decide to outsource in the name of "keeping profit margins up." I mean come on, phase 1, raise prices.... Phase 2, outsource shirts to a 3rd world country that alegedly isn't that bad to live in, phase 3... Profit?
No thanks. I realize staff* doesn't much care about the squeak of a single person, and the 2 or 3 dozen shirts I won't buy in the near future Won't be missed, but when people ask where I got my shirts, I'll no longer direct them here, rather I'll say "from a company I no longer can morally do business with." Considering I own enough woot shirts to wear a different one, every day of the week, from now until July, means I get a lot of commentary on my wardrobe, but again, the managerial types who can make a difference don't care, and the ones who do, aren't high enough up the pole to get heard.
*(I'm sure some of the staff cares. )
Edit: If you check the sizing chart, it specifically says in that the blanks are from Honduras. its an Anvil blank, but woot no longer feels a need to tell people up front in bold that they are done with AA shirts.
