Exposing slavery becomes easier, bringing elimination closer

A lot of stuff we use on a daily basis is still far too often made under highly questionable labor circumstances.  But the Internet can help to create more transparency and that will bring about the elimination of forced labor.  Made in a Free World, a group of anti–slavery advocates, has partnered with US Department of State to create software that assesses the supply chain for manufactured goods and tries to find parts of the chain that might have forced labor present. The software uses information from Made in a Free World’s database of risk factors, services, commodities, and products. After making its assessment the software suggests ways that forced labor can be minimized or eliminated from the analyzed supply chain.
