Unsavory news on slavery
The Guardian reveals Asian slave labor has been producing prawns for supermarkets in both the US and UK (6,281 shares). Ariel Kaminer tweets, "Shrimp, please, with a side of torture, murder, imprisonment. Another industry built on slave labor. Horrific." Or as NYT's Danielle Ivory discomfitingly portrayed it, "How slaves played a big role in producing your shrimp cocktail."
There was also this accompanying video (with 658 shares). At First Look Media, Daniel Froomkin advised, "Stop. Watch. Weep. Don’t buy shrimp from suppliers who rely on slave labor. ... Looking at you, @costco."
