JJ Rosenbaum Proposes Solutions to Eliminate Child Labor in the U.S. and Global Supply Chains

Jennifer (JJ) Rosenbaum (’03), Executive Director of Global Labor Justice - International Labor Rights Forum, published an article on LinkedIn exposing the failure of audits to stop child labor and outlining approaches to end labor abuses (“Audits Are Not the Answer: Four Labor Approaches to Eliminating Child Labor on U.S. and Global Supply Chains,” Feb. 8). “The global supply chain has long demonstrated the limits of auditing to get at gender-based violence and harassment, wage theft, child labor, and other labor abuses. . . . Unions and other labor rights organizations around the world have plenty of experience fighting against these abuses, and the real solution is clear: global brands must be accountable to the workers (and their unions) in their supply chains.”
