  1. Tea Producers Accused of Complicity in Indian Slavery

    The Guardian newspaper has accused one of the world’s largest tea producers of facilitating human trafficking on a plantation in Assam, India. Workers are paid 91 rupees a day, less than half the minimum wage, and campaigners argue this makes it easier for traffickers to lure people with promises of a better life. The plantation is owned by a consortium, including Tata Global Beverages — which has made a legal complaint against The Guardian — and the investment arm of the World Bank.
