Legislation that would ban the sale of products made through slave labor is on its way to becoming a law. The U.S. Senate on Thursday voted to close a loophole in the Tariff Act of 1930. It would bar goods made by convict, forced or indentured labor. For 85 years the US government has turned a blind eye to companies that import goods derived from slavery. But renewed focus on global company supply chains that
depend on slave labor will close the tariff's loophole.
