DOL releases list of goods produced by forced labor and/or child labor

In what is philosophy? on September 13, 2009 at 9:16 pm

the department of labor has recently released a list, delayed by the Bush administration since 2005, of good produced by nation using forced labor and/or child labor.  the report is 194 pages long, detailing the methodology and terminology used in constructing this list.  the list itself, first by country and then by good, can be read between pages 13-28 of the report.  these 15 pages are a fast read with potential long term impacts on production, consumption and working conditions worldwide as company practices are connected with abusive labor practices.  the entire report can be found here, and i have inserted screen grabs of the list by type of good below which you can click to enlarge.
