I believe that until overseas suppliers are required to conform to the target market’s labour laws, standards, etc, Third World labour continues to be a form of ersatz slavery.

Walmart would appear to agree with me, but their solution is to drag their workers’ lot down rather than pull their suppliers’ lot up.

So called “open border / free trade” has created a rise in slave labor around the world. Please don’t think slave labor has to look like slave labor did in the American south or Rome. It can and does look like the slave labor in this burned down factory.
