Fast Company published this interesting article on the work of Verité, a company that is called upon by major corporations when they are suspected or entrenched in labor claims in their factories. “Verité started as a social auditing organization in the 1990s. The nonprofit was simply gathering information on where factories sourced their goods when they realized that there was a correlation between the presence of migrant workers and labor problems like unpaid wages, sexual harassment, and child labor. So Verité convinced a foundation to get on board and financially support the nonprofit to figure out the problem. The problem: Workers paid high fees to brokers in their home countries to find them jobs, and as a result, they had to borrow money and mortage their homes and farms to pay the fees.”
