Greetings.

This notice about a new exhibit at the Smithsonian NMAH just appeared in my
inbox.  I tried the first few stops on the exhibit and found it pretty
informative.  Anybody covering labor issues??

Between a Rock and a Hard Place: A History of American Sweatshops 1820 -
Present
http://www.si.edu/organiza/museums/nmah/ve/sweatshops/

Here's what the Scout Report had to say about it:

The Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American History provides
this online exhibit, a look at one of the more unsavory aspects of American
history. The exhibit can be viewed via a floor plan or a series of
navigational toolbars at the bottom of the screen. The content and the
design of the exhibit are fascinating. Each section is introduced by large
images from the actual exhibit. The user can then move the mouse to various
parts of those images and click to retrieve a larger rendering of that part
of the exhibit. In this way, the virtual viewer can experience the exhibit
close to how an actual viewer would. In addition to the history section,
there is a section on the El Monte California sweatshop (broken up in
1995), the fashion food chain, and a dialog in which six spokespeople give
their views on the question "What should Americans know about sweatshop
production in the United States?" Multimedia sections are forthcoming. [JS]
