Made possible through the Access to Information Act, on February 5, 2016, the Brazilian National Institute Pact for the Eradication of Slave Labor (InPACTO) released the Ministry of Labor’s updated blacklist of 340 companies fined for maintaining workers under slave-like conditions. While agricultural enterprises make up the large majority, textile and construction companies operating in urban areas are not far behind.

Since 2003, the Ministry of Labor began publishing its annual “Laundry List,” as it is known, to deter companies from using slave labor. The blacklist reveals the identity of the owner, business name with registration number, and address. Those blacklisted cannot obtain government loans and participate in public auctions. Under the National Pact for the Eradication of Slave Labor of 2005, they also face private sector boycott of their products and services.

      While the USD gets stronger the American people gets poorer.
      They end up buying Chinese
      junk….to survive. They cannot
      afford American goods…or services
      …catch 22.
      Question
      Can a car assembler afford to buy
      the car he makes or the one robots
      make.? Robots do not buy cars.
      Soon humans won’t even be driving
      them….
