“Woke” ice cream manufacturer Ben & Jerry’s has been caught using migrant child slave labor in its supply chains, according to a new report.
A recent New York Times exposé revealed that Ben & Jerry’s suppliers violated labor laws by utilizing migrant child labor to process milk.
The Times report interviewed more than 100 migrant child workers in 20 states.
It found that children are employed in the supply chain for several large companies, including Walmart, Target, Whole Foods, Ford, General Motors, and Ben & Jerry’s.
Ben & Jerry’s described itself as a “progressive” company and its cofounders, Jerry Greenfield and Ben Cohen, are vocal left-wing activists.
According to the exposé, the children described the jobs as “grinding them into exhaustion.”
They expressed concern that they had “become trapped in circumstances they never could have imagined.”
In some circumstances, children as young as 13 were found working 12-hour days.
They were also found working overnight shifts while going to school during the day.
