How Many Slaves are Working for You? New App Reveals Truths about Slave Labor.

How Many Slaves are Working for You? New App Reveals Truths about Slave Labor.

In an interview with CNN’s Freedom Project , Call + Response Leader Justin Dylan said that the technology around the Slavery Footprint enabled the creators to use vetted data to determine the slavery in different types of products that are used on a daily basis. The application does not go after any certain brand, but instead focuses on products that are commonly used. According to CCN Money , some results included that 9 people or “slaves” were used to mine rubies in jewelry; 3.1 individuals were used to make bikes; 1.9 to make diapers; .9 to make cotton T-shirts, and 3.2 to make a smartphone. Dylan said he hopes the app will help users to begin a conversation with companies about their practices. Visit Slavery Footprint to find out your score.
