Child labour
Do you know where your household products come from? It does not mean the country but who is producing the product. The majority of products imported from other countries are produced by children and adults. They work on their free will because of their poor standard of living. To manage the expenses and run their life, they work in the production sector. Some several and products are manufactured by forced labor and children. It is a well know truth hidden in most people’s eyes.

Recently, the president of the United States, Barack Obama had signed up a bill stating that hereafter goods that are imported and produced by the United States slaves would be banned. Barack Obama has banned the garments stitched by the Bangladesh abused women, gold in Africa mined by the Children, fish caught in South East Asia by the slaves. He told that it is an 85-year-old law but still not maintained up to date. He wanted to avoid imported products that are produced by the children and forced labor of America and other countries. He added that last year seafood shipped by the Thai Companies to the United States was caught and treated by the enslaved and trapped workers. The Association Press has found that shrimp and fish were caught and processed by people who were locked in factories and cages to supply the leading chains of top restaurants and retailers.

Some of the popular supermarket chains like Whole Foods and Wal-Mart and restaurants like Red Lobster has been purchasing from such people. When enquired the companies have told the government that they are taking steps to stop purchasing from them and stay against child and labor abuse.

It is difficult for the United Government to monitor and check out whether they are purchasing from the legitimate exporters. Some goods produced overseas and in the boundaries of the United States remain hidden. When it is shipped through the third party, the main ties or the producers will not be known. It is how the products slip to the United States borders and remain out of sight to the leaders and social activists.
