This is exactly why I buy everything direct from the manufacturer; you never know when you might accidentally be taking advantage of someone without even knowing it (or without them even knowing it).
Quite immoral buying from a manufacturer! Don't you realize they are buying raw materials cheap then adding a mark up to sell to you. They are just taking advantage of raw material producers that are in a bad way.
The only moral thing to do is to dig your own minerals, grow your own crops, and make all your own goods.
