Progress towards combating modern slavery

Aimee Pearce

I love progress. 

Sometimes it feels like we are living in a crazy time in history where if anything, we are seeing society reversing instead of progressing. So it's worth celebrating the moments (big and small) where we make some good decisions right?

Last week the Australian government pledged announced plans to introduce legislation to crack down on modern slavery by forcing big companies to be more transparent. So businesses that earn over $100 million will need to clearly identify the steps they are taking to address slavery by publishing a public statement every year outlining how they are scrutinising their supply chains and ensuring they aren't complicit in forced labour or human trafficking.

Of course it would be great if everyone just did the right thing themselves and the government didn't have to introduce legislation, but to date, the responsibility has almost solely fell to the consumer. So until big business steps up to the plate it will be a long time before we can adequately make a dint in addressing slavery. So kudos to the government for making the initial steps!

Yes there has been criticism from the opposition that the proposed laws don'tdo enough and should be improved further to force compliance and appoint an independent anti-slavery commissioner. I concur, there is room for improvement but I am thrilled to see a starting point.
