Profiting From Abuse

Alongside health warnings, Human Rights Watch suggests cigarette packages should have to include another warning: “This product may be made with child labor.”
 
It’s a particular problem for children working for tobacco companies in Indonesia, which employ kids as young as 8 in the tobacco fields. HRW research shows that they suffer from exposure to nicotine and toxic pesticides as a result.
 
To help stamp out such abuse, HRW urges investors to pay attention to the 5th annual Dirty Profits report, published by the nonprofit Facing Finance this week—and demand change. The report informs investors about human rights abuses and environmental violations by major multinational firms.
