Should we name and shame brands with abuse in supply chains?

Sir David Metcalf, the UK's director of labour market enforcement says that brands and suppliers that fail to correct non-compliance with labour laws should be named and shamed. This is one of a number of proposals he made to the UK government on preventing exploitation of the UK's lowest paid workers. Other recommendations include higher financial penalties and more prosecutions of employers that exploit workers and a pilot scheme to test licencing of high risk businesses, including car washes and nail bars.
