If slavery was legal and you owned a business would you avail of this source of free labor

For western industrialists to be able to compete against most communist nations such as China, on a level playing field either a total trade ban with all countries which permit the use of slave labor or the 'RED REGIMES'  are forced to operate a transparent and verifiable system of employment.

Well given the fact that in this hypothetical reality, slavery is legal. It would also mean that it's still widely accepted by the populace.

Thanks for that, but slavery and forced labor exists in many Asian countries including China whose industrial goods and agricultural produce have flooded our markets for decades.

In a global market we cannot remain isolated and indifferent to the barbaric employment practices of other countries.

Side: Yes, good for the bottom line.

The concept is still that slavery is still practiced for us, as well as places like in china. Something that we would all participate in, and build production off of at that point.

As it pertains to today however, we're stuck standing there and pointing our fingers, telling these people to stop these practices. Something that we actually can't enforce, or even expect them to listen to us on the matter.

Many ultra left-wing counties permit certain sectors of their economy to remain buoyant by not only turning a blind-eye to the use of slave labor but by also failing to protect their work forces with Health & Safety legislation and Fair Employment regulations.

Still with all the virtue-signalling lefties in this country continue to buy the goods made under these barbaric conditions.

Don’t support slavery. We almost have wage slaves cause of such a class difference. The day we solve exploitation is the day we reach nirvana.

Good post but I feel that the wage difference also exists as a consequence of many factors including individual ability, ambition, work-ethic and overall attitude to life.

Slave labor, and indeed forced labor exists in such nations as China whose goods and produce we buy with blind enthusiasm.

All goods manufactured by nations which endorse the use of slave labor and fail to protect employees with western style worker protective legislation should be barred from trading with the nations of the free world.

Yes, I know and if you read my thread thoroughly you'll see that I covered that fact.

Thanks for the reply.
