Always important to remember that food has a whole labor history before it gets to your plate. Unless you grow or shoot it yourself maybe. And even then it’s arguable.

Thanks for whichever commenter brought this story to my attention. Sorry I can’t remember who it was now.

    Read, The American Way of Eating, by Tracie McMillan. Basically every bit of produce that you buy from a store in the US was harvested by what amounts to indentured servants.

  • Holy shit. That was horrific. It makes me want to vomit.

  • As children we are often told to think about the starving children in China (or wherever) when we don’t finish our food. As adults we have to think of the enslaved adults in (where ever) before we start to eat.

    Don’t even think about eating chocolate, much of which is produced by child slave labor.

    • According to every Ghanaian I have ever talked to about this subject this is largely a Western myth. The cocoa farms have always been family farms and yes children work on them. Children work in the family business here in the markets too. In fact my current boss worked on a cocoa farm all through his childhood. He was not a slave. This is where you White Western perceptions are misleading you.

    Typical exploitation.

    You know, it’s always important to remember that blog-posts have a whole labor history before they get to your front page.

    • Will you be signing for the Internet or can UPS leave it on your porch?
