5 Million Prison slaves - Chances are they've made some things you used or wore today.

The source of this story is Al Jazeera -- not necessarily American friendly. So consider that. But don't ignore the facts. America and Europe are turning blind eyes and deaf ears to the fact that much of imports from China, while sold through a 'front' company, are indeed manufactured under forced labor in over 1,000 prisons in China. It's all part of their dirty little secret (well, not so little). You'll find this fascinate and while I believe legitimate prisoners who are serving a sentence should work -- I do not for a moment believe that the majority of these prisoners are legit -- they're Christians and opponents to the Chinese regime. And their forced labor includes working days in extreme heat and cold that last from 7 a.m. to 12 midnight.

Americans say nothing because they are indebted financially and business-wise to China. But wrong is wrong.

What can you and I do? Take a look at what you picked up in the store. If it says, "made in China" -- no matter who it's made by or for -- put it back. Pay the extra amount it costs to get something made at home. We'll all win.

Here are the dirty little details. Well worth watching.
