    Products that consumers rely on every day often have links to questionable labor practices—a shirt made from cotton picked by child laborers, a smartphone using coltan sourced from countries with child labor and coffee made from beans harvested by slaves.¹ The U.S. Department of Labor’s 2012 list of goods produced by children or forced labor includes 134 different types of goods from 74 countries.² Despite a zero-tolerance policy on using overseas manufacturers that flout local laws, U.S. federal agencies often have limited knowledge about which factories make the clothing used by federal workers. Hence, they have inadvertently used suppliers that show a pattern of harsh working conditions.³ The persistence of labor abuse indicates the complexity of the problem and its resistance to many of the solutions currently in place. In the article, Supply Unchained: Fighting Labor Abuse in Your Supply Chain, published in Deloitte Review, the authors consider current and emerging solutions to this global challenge. They suggest that organizations focus on taking incremental steps that consistently improve the status quo without losing sight of the longer-term goal of making workplaces safe, fair and humane.

        From the director of the award winning documentary ABUSED: THE POSTVILLE RAID (www.abusedthepostvilleraid.com) now comes THE U-TURN, a new documentary film that tells the transformational journey of the immigrant workers who broke the silence about the abuses they endured at Agriprocessors, Inc. in Postville, Iowa, and the community that would not abandon them. This film showcases the U visa, an immigration relief in need of dissemination among, and understanding by, immigrants, immigration rights-advocates and law-enforcement. Postville is the first time that a large number of U visas was filed for victimization of immigrant women and minors at the work place.
