After all the math is done/ how little the scouts get vs the profits for the company; the break down of cost per package vs cookies per box; c'mon admit it there is far more packaging than edible product; keep in mind the kids(and parents) pimping out the product to friends, family ,strangers, co-workers, the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker; sale sale sale;now go back to doing the math, the image of kids in a sweat shop keeps popping up.

They only get 60 cents per box? I figured they at least got half. From now on I think I will just leave a donation for those sweet, hard-working little girls. At least they'll get 100 percent of that.
