I have an Ergo and love it. I jsut got a Beco and love how pretty it is but I am just not feeling the Beco love like the Ergo. Please share with my your thoughts and what you like or dislike about them.

The factory has high standards that ensure care, honesty, fairness and respect. Workers are paid minimum wage and are paid by the hour from 9 am to 5 pm Monday thru Saturday. There is a lunch break and a one-hour naptime mid day. Benefits are overtime pay, holidays, and bonuses. They are allowed one day off every week. They also receive cash incentives and bonuses during the Spring Festival.
Only workers 18 years old and above are accepted to work in the factory. The total factory work force is 100. Some of the workers come from Northern China. The majority, however, live near the city and neighboring areas. These workers are reimbursed for their transportation expenses and housing assistance is provided for workers who have to rent their lodging. Workers are required to wear protective clothing (uniform/lab-gown/masks) during factory operations. Technicians on a weekly basis check machines and equipment.
