U of Wisconsin rejects Nike business ethics

The admirable website, EthicsAlarms.com, praised the U of Wisconsin today for ending its contract with Nike, the result of a 15-year effort by my friend Jim Keady.

Keady’s 15-year effort to get Nike to take some responsibility for the workers who make products with the swoosh has included living for three months in Indonesia on $1.25 a day, the wage in a local factory that makes shoes for Nike. He’s a Jesuit-educated true believer in Catholic ideas (not necessarily practices) of charity.
