    Students protest foreign sweatshops - By AMY ROLPH, Seattle Post Intelligencer
    Earlier this month, Seattle University joined about 40 universities in committing to a 'designated suppliers program' that requires companies producing the apparel sold on campus to establish long-term relationships with garment factories so workers can be guaranteed a 'living wage.'

    Western Washington University committed to the program in April; the UW followed suit in May. The schools' decisions were motivated largely by at least a year of meetings and protests at the universities.
