Examining Today's Labor Market

The question, I guess is whether the women will work for what they've been paying the cows:
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry's Homemade Inc., urging them to replace cow's milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk, according to a statement recently released by a PETA spokeswoman.

Storchen restaurant is set to unveil a menu that includes soups, stews, and sauces made with at least 75 percent breast milk procured from human donors who are paid in exchange for their milk. If Ben and Jerry's replaced the cow's milk in its ice cream with breast milk, your customers-and cows-would reap the benefits.

It's hard to tell where PETA, NOW and the Militant Breast Feeders will clash on this one, but since their all predictably in the bag for Obama for another six weeks, we probably won't hear a thing.
