Don’t support slavery

That case of the Vietnamese people being smuggled into Britain in a lorry, in which they all died, highlights the danger of people smuggling and exploitation.

I have seen it in so many films how property owners in remote locations can easily hide slaves and nobody seems to care.

Labour intensive business, the beauty industry, sex industry and others seem to find it easy to use slave labour instead of the regular people who get wages and have contracts to work as free people.

What I find interesting is how to avoid buying goods or services from companies who use slave labour.

Most larger companies have a lot of scrutiny to content with but those non regulated supplier, whether they work from markets or selling over the Internet, who asks where they get their staff from?

What we need is labelling on all goods supplied in shops or markets, which state that the supplier has adhered to a code of human respect. That employes who helped produce the item in the packaging are employed under good conditions.

Why stop at calorific value and fat and sugar content, we also need to know who is making it.

Nobody seems to check what people companies employ. How else would it be possible that suddenly people get detected locked away and enslaved and that they worked for a business as cheap labour.

I refuse to buy things from non regulated business whether that’s a market or an unknown Internet company. I do not use the beauty industry like nail bars anyhow. The one time I used a nailbar, was extremely frustrating, the lady did not seem to know the first thing about nails. Though I got charged top money for a rubbish service.
