Widespread Labor Abuse on Banana Plantations in Ecuador

WIDESPREAD LABOR ABUSE ON BANANA PLANTATIONS IN ECUADOR

Ecuadorian children as young as eight work on banana plantations in hazardous conditions, while adult workers fear being fired if they try to exercise their right to organize, Human Rights Watch found in a new report. Ecuador is the world's largest banana exporter and the source of roughly one quarter of all bananas on the tables of U.S. and European consumers.
