Most of us support unethical practices with our purchases. Most of the time we probably don’t realize our purchases are being supported by unethical decisions, other times we have an idea that sweatshops and other forms of slavery are being used, but we ignore it.
Many large corporations utilize slave labor, and, even worse, child slave labor, when outsourcing their production.
Because these slave workers are not American, we tend to distance ourselves from the hidden nature of these atrocities.
Here are five huge companies who use or have used child labor to create something you or someone you know has purchased.

    Here in the US the private prison system uses inmate labor at almost no cost ($1.00 to $5.00/ day) in everything from phone and computer banks, manufacturing of things from shoes to bullet proof vests. All contracted to major US corporations. A article at opposing views expands on this ethically challenged practice at:

  • how do these articles make it to the net without top people seeing them and doing something about this? I now know I will be very selective where I shop and what I buy. why doesn’t the US just start growing, producing it’s own goods? would give many people jobs and then in turn these people can help these children in the shops and fields. I don’t get it!!!!

    It is called corporate greed,they will never get enough.Americans will still buy a $10.00 doll that here in America would cost a $100 to make not counting the time it would take to make it yourself. We need to go back to sharecropping with neighbors and NOT buy wants instead of needs. Only by MADE IN AMERICA products to stop these fat cat companies from exploiting children and families in foreign countries.

  • This seriously horrifies me. It also makes me want to only buy products that I know are not the product of child labor or slave labor.

  • Can’t believe why this is “ok” to them!

  • What is going on with them, I mean they think Child Labour is just nothing to them, I mean what the hell people should let children go to schools the ones who have been removed from schools to work. We have a life. The children have lives too. Let them live!!!!!!!
