More Reasons to Choose Organic Food
Slave labour in Australia ?
Anyone old enough will remember all the labour abuse in the textile, clothing and footwear industries where mostly women worked for a pittance.
Now sadly it is agriculture and migrant workers, probably Australians as well.
Check out the ‘Slaving Away’ program on Four Corners on the ABC for what is going on in the food chain suppliers to Coles, Woolworths, Aldi and no doubt other supermarkets and retailers.
Very conveniently, both the farmers and the supermarkets ‘claim’ use of labour supply firms who do all the dirty work – and who the dominant companies can then easily sever relationships with and move on to the next (repackaged) labour supply firm.
So the food supply is basically factory manufacturing of what we put on our plate every week, and the workers are exploited.
Supporting, buying, eating organically certified food – good for us on every front, including supporting the health and well being of all the individuals and businesses involved.
