Seeking the End of the Line for Human Trafficking
Human trafficking and forced labour occurs in industries in Australia such as construction, the meat industry, manufacturing, hospitality and people who are forced to live-in as house keepers. Goods imported from overseas can be tainted by forced labour, human trafficking and slavery. People coming to work in Australia from overseas expect that if they work hard they will get decent pay and conditions. Shamefully, this is not always true. A number of proposals to address human trafficking, both in Australia and in the production of imported goods, are under active consideration by the Minister for Justice, Michael Keenan.
ACRATH is supporting the campaign initiated by the Uniting Church Justice and International Mission asking the Minister for Justice to push his colleagues in Government to take action. Join the campaign here.
