article description
This report highlights how Firestone’s multiple violations of ILO core labor rights have taken place simultaneously at the Liberia plantation. The issues of fair representation, eliminating child labor, and discrimination are inter-connected. These concerns must be addressed as a whole so as to avoid exploitation manifesting in different forms.
