Common items we use that are produced unethically. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg --------------------------------------------------------------- Description: We all strongly desire expensive products at cheap cost, leading us to shop at major retailers such as Walmart of Costco, that offer merchandise and products at a great cost. Most of us don’t think about why the product is as cheap as it is, and how the big box corporations make their money from such cheap prices. Unfortunately, the cost of a great discount is rather great in terms of ethics and morale. What is even harder to swallow is the fact that some of most basic and common products come from worlds of corruption, slave labor, and harsh discipline procedures that make any humanitarian sick. However, because the...
One in six children 5 to 14 years old — about 16 percent of all children in this age group — is involved in child labor in developing countries. In the least developed countries, 30 percent of all children are engaged in child labor. Worldwide, 126 million children work in hazardous conditions, often enduring beatings, humiliation and sexual violence by their employers. An estimated 1.2 million children — both boys and girls — are trafficked each year into exploitative work in agriculture, mining, factories, armed conflict or commercial sex work. The highest proportion of child laborers is in sub-Saharan Africa, where 26 percent of children (49 million) are involved in work
Sometimes we have no choice, we work till dawn. When you work all night you become dizzy and your eyes hurt because you can't take any breaks. SANTA'S WORKSHOP takes you to the real world of China's toy factories. Workers tell us about long working hours, low wages, and dangerous work places. Those who protest or try to organize trade unions risk imprisonment. Low labor costs attract more and more companies to China. Today more than 75% of our toys are made in China. But this industry takes its toll on the workers and on the environment. The European (and American) buyers blame bad conditions on the Chinese suppliers. But they say that increasingly hard competition gives them no option. Who should we believe? And what can you do to bring about a fairer and more humane toy trade?
Most people know Dubai for its massive skyscrapers and luxurious hotels, but few know that the city was built by modern-day slaves. -- For months, the BBC's Ben Anderson hung out around the glittering, insane towers springing up in Dubai trying to infiltrate the community of expatriate workers who are putting them up.

This introductory video opened Trust Women 2013 plenary on rooting out slavery in supply chains Slavery is all around us.It's been linked to the supply chains of everyday products, from shoes and bags to matches and soccer balls. It lurks in many of the commodities that fuel the global economy: cocoa, coffee, precious metals... Multinational supply chains are sometimes so convoluted and opaque that it's hard to pinpoint the agent or sub-contractor using slave labour. From frozen shrimp to mobile phones, how can we be sure the products we buy weren't produced through human misery? What can businesses -- and consumers -- do to guarantee the things in our lives are genuinely slave free? More on: http://www.trustwomenconf.com/

Migrant workers building Khalifa International Stadium in Doha for the 2022 World Cup have suffered systematic abuses, in some cases forced labour, Amnesty International reveals in a new report. The report, “The ugly side of the beautiful game: Labour exploitation on a Qatar 2022 World Cup venue”, blasts FIFA’s shocking indifference to appalling treatment of migrant workers.

Human trafficking represents a multibillion in international trade per annum and continues to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries. While undeniably a global phenomenon, the U.S., as one of the world’s leading human trafficking importers, bears a special responsibility to combat this practice. The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling traffickers to exploit millions of victims.

In which John Green teaches you about one of the least funny subjects in history: slavery. John investigates when and where slavery originated, how it changed over the centuries, and how Europeans and colonists in the Americas arrived at the idea that people could own other people based on skin color. Slavery has existed as long as humans have had civilization, but the Atlantic Slave Trade was the height, or depth, of dehumanizing, brutal, chattel slavery. American slavery ended less than 150 years ago. In some parts of the world, it is still going on. So how do we reconcile that with modern life? In a desperate attempt at comic relief, Boba Fett makes an appearance. Crash Course World History is now available on DVD! http://store.dftba.com/products/crashcourse-world-history-the-complet...
