AMC fair trade

As the political party conference season echoes to talk of Brexit and Free trade, let's not forgot Fair trade. Free trade is about a general openness to exchange goods and services between nations with little or no barriers. Fair trade is about demands of justice, such as a decent minimum wage for workers, avoiding exploitation of child labour, working hours etc. We ignore Fair trade at our peril. One of the causes of economic migration is because workers cannot get a decent price for their labours.
We can all help by buying more Fair traded products and ensuring our politicians make post-Brexit trade deals that do not disregard the fair treatment of workers, be they here or abroad. For the Fairtrade website, click here.
