Great post! While you are absolutely correct, this is very difficult to do ... if it's even possible in most cases.
This is turning into one of the huge issues of globalization. Manufacturers move their operations to the country that offers the "lowest cost of production" in which labor and environmental laws are nearly non-existent or unenforced. Manufacturers can only be a low-cost producers by exploiting human labor and pillaging natural resources without being held accountable and responsible for the production waste generated and then improperly disposed of. As a result, manufactures "externalize" or transfer the costs of these "sins of production" to the community, suppliers, consumers, and employees.
The only ones not sharing these externalized costs of these transnational oligopolies are the stockholders. These stockholders (of which most are the elite ruling class) have no qualms whatsoever in extracting additional profits through the exploitation of human and natural resources just so they can receive an additional $.02 per share next quarter.
The slavery discussed in this article along with all types of exploitation and pillage of human and natural resources will continue (and continue to get worse) until the end of capitalism.
Capitalism cannot be reformed, it must be replaced if humanity and Earth are to survive.
Whether or not we care to admit it, our current economy is extractive—that is, it’s built on the exploitation and extraction of human labor and the earth’s resources. It relies on corporations that force workers to work long hours in unsafe conditions for insufficient wages and benefits. It exists by the continual removal of nutrients from the soil, minerals from the mountains, and fossil fuels from underground. This system isn’t working for us today, and it isn’t going to work for us tomorrow. We know that infinite growth is not possible, but this economy depends on it.
