NESTLE SAYS REQUIREMENT TO REPORT USE OF SLAVE LABOR WOULD COST CONSUMERS MORE MONEY

While the Free Thought Project often reports on the megacorp Nestle and their rampant abuse and exploitation of drinking water supplies across the nation, few are aware that the company has been found using slave labor. What’s more, as governments across the world attempt to crack down the use of slave labor by requiring companies to report on its use, Nestle is fighting it, saying that it will end up costing consumers at the register.

Late last month, Nestle issued a warning against proposed legislation that would require them to report on their efforts to weed out slavery within their company. The company says the cost of checking to see if they are forcing people to work against their will end up being passed on to the consumer.

As the Sydney Morning Herald reports, companies operating in Australia with an annual turnover of $100 million or more would be required to annually report on the risks of modern slavery within their business and the actions they’ve taken to address those risks under the federal government’s draft Modern Slavery Bill 2018.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

For Nestle execs to make such a claim, telegraphs, in large, neon letters, that they are already using slave and/or convict labor in the production of their products.

And hey, if it costs me a little more to buy their product (which, at the moment, I am personally boycotting because of their sharp business tactics), that is OK.

Just please, Lord, do not tell me you are using either slave or convict labor, in the production of your products, because that.... is going to cause consumers to bolt, big-time, from buying whatever you offer.
