WASHINGTON — Child and forced labor continues to be a widespread problem in the global production of apparel and footwear, cultivation of cotton, and mining of gold and diamonds, according to a report Thursday by the U.S. Department of Labor.
As part of the 194-page report, the Labor Department’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs published a first-ever list of 122 goods from 58 countries that were “believed” to have been made with child or forced labor in violation of international labor standards. Congress directed the Labor Department to investigate child and forced labor, and publish a list in the “Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2005.”
