| Hi Conrad,|
Do you shop at Wal-Mart? Wouldn't you like to shop there knowing that Wal-Mart follows U.S. child labor laws and refuses to profit from overseas child labor abuses? Unfortunately, this is not the case.
This holiday season, join our partner Wake Up Wal-Mart in calling on Wal-Mart to adopt a zero tolerance policy on child labor: http://go.care2.com/e/R2z./b7lP/Sv24
A recent investigation by the National Labor Committee revealed children, some only 11 years old, were making Wal-Mart clothes in a Bangladesh factory. The children report being routinely slapped and beaten, forced to work 12 to 14 hours a day, often seven days a week, for wages as low as 6 and a half cents an hour.
Right here in the United States, Wal-Mart's own internal audit found 1,371 instances in which minors worked too late at night, during school hours, or too many hours in a day. It also found 60,767 instances of workers missing breaks and 15,705 instances where employees were forced to work and miss meal times.
Despite all of this, Wal-Mart refuses to adopt a zero tolerance policy on child labor! Our children deserve better from Wal-Mart. This holiday season, tell Wal-Mart to adopt a zero tolerance policy on child labor.
Thank you for making a difference today!
