Project to Reduce Child Labor and Improve Working Conditions in Agriculture in the Dominican Republic
This project will support the Dominican government’s efforts to combat child labor and strengthen labor law enforcement while helping businesses prevent, detect and eliminate labor abuses in the agriculture sector. Building off the commitment of the Ministry of Labor and of a growing number of businesses, the project will help promote supply chains free of exploitative labor and a fair playing field for workers in the U.S. and around the world.
