It did not train loading workers on safety techniques or provide employees with equipment that could reduce injury, including lifting belts or seats with backrests.The factory, which began operating in 1992, had also never sought an assessment of occupational disease hazards like those common among workers dealing with repetitive tasks and harsh chemicals.Two inspectors from SMT Global, a third party monitoring group, inspected the factory one month before President Trump’s election victory. The Fair Labor Association then alerted G III to the problems it had discovered including 24 violations of standards set by the United Nations’ International Labor Organization and asked what steps it would take in response.[Ivanka Trump responds to critics: ‘I don’t know what it means to be complicit’]The factory pledged to make some progress to improve training, assess hazards, hire more workers and reduce overtime demands. But it did not commit to increasing worker pay and at times pushed back against recommendations that could improve workplace safety.Of occupational hazards, inspectors wrote that the “factory thinks the worker’s health is covered by social welfare and insurance policy, and working conditions such as chair and loading staff safety are not as important.”The Washington based Fair Labor Association was founded in 1999 by a group of nonprofits, universities and clothing companies after a series of scandals over sweatshop labor and other abuses.The group has inspected more than 1,500 factories used by its affiliate companies, including G III, whose contract factories in China, India and Pakistan have been inspected seven times since 2007.
Sidetrack story: Back in my electrician days I used to be a thermometer guy on the side and it used to be my duty to always report any violations detected. I went through entire buildings, opening every panel. Shit I saw some horrible stuff, and the worst part is often the customer ended up ordering the repairs from us = me.
Whenever I had a dream, if I brought the ambition she gave me the resources I needed to turn that dream into a reality. Oprah Winfrey is another monumental inspiration for my faith in how far I can go in life. I have read many books written by her, my favorite being “What I Know For Sure.” I also admire Carol Moseley Braun who was the first African American female to serve as US Senator.
Le quatrime article nous fait quitter l’univers de la distribution pour aborder le sujet de l’co socialisation, autrement dit de l’apprentissage du comportement cologiquement responsable. Deux enseignants chercheurs tunisiens, Soumaya Askri Jendoubi et Hechmi Najjar, nous proposent une recherche conduite auprs d’un jeune public et intitule Eco socialisation des enfants : rflexion prospective sur la contribution des personnages emblmatiques ‘verts’ . Les auteurs soulignent juste titre l’importance du jeune public dans l’adoption de comportements de consommation cologique, en raison de leur nombre mais galement des perspectives qu’ils dessinent pour l’avenir.
