    Its less than a page long. Come on.


    Short version: Hasbro is joining another association designed to prevent worker exploitation and sustainable supplier usage in electronics and other commercial goods. The short term implications are an action by Hasbro to identify suppliers they think are at risk of noncompliance with the association standards, and have them audited. Without trying to drag things into a political direction, I am skeptical this will have any significant impact beyond a public relations announcement, especially given Hasbro has already effectively made the same commitment previously and suppliers were accused of unacceptable working conditions less than 5 years ago.
