Auret van Heerden: Making global labor fair (TED)

Labor activist Auret van Heerden talks about the next frontier of workers' rights -- globalized industries where no single national body can keep workers safe and protected. How can we keep our global supply chains honest? Van Heerden makes the business case for fair labor.

Globalization will some day be a thing of the past due to the costs of transporting goods... however, in the meantime... pay attention to what you buy and from whom. Make sure your buying habits do not support shameless exploitation of slave and child labor.
