Child Labor - The Human Cost of Cheap Coffee
The United States imports in excess of $4 Billion worth of coffee per year which supplies the 400 million cups of coffee brewed every day in the U.S. So that should translate to an industry that supplies plenty of well paid jobs to its growers, right? Unfortunately many plantations the workers can’t lead decent lives on their wages. One example is Guatemala. Our "In Focus" program this week highlights the connection between low coffee prices in the West and the exploitation of children, who toil away on the plantations of German roasters instead of going to school.
