Why forced labour?
- Forced labour is modern day slavery and this atrocity is happening throughout the world every day. Recent research indicates there are thousands of forced labour workers in the UK. However, as this type of modern day slavery is still largely misunderstood, many victims remain unidentified and without access to the necessary support.
- Forced labour is something all of us come into contact with every day as consumers. The case studies we have included show how forced labour might have been involved in the production of the clothes you wear, the chicken you eat or the new paving slabs on your driveway. We want to show how we as consumers have both a responsibility and the power to eradicate slavery in the supply chain.
