As far as human rights are concern, we suck at it. Even now countless business use the most unethical of practices to the point that they are crimes against humanity. If you don’t believe me just look at some of the bills recently brought to congress from wicked profit making practice.
1. Non-Profits Making A Profit
Did you know that Goodwill is nothing more than a man that convince people to give their clothes for free so that he could sell them for a profit. Due to the overwhelming evidences from non-profit companies bookkeeping not adding up the SUN Act was introduced. This is the Sunlight for Unaccountable Non-profits Act and its goal is in the name. Non-profit companies will need to make their transactions public information so people can see where their money is going when they are trying to find charities that do good work.
2. Prisoners for Profit
When most people think of prison they assume these are government ran to insure that people do their time. What most people don’t realize is the prison industry is actual a very profitable business. Prison are being privately owned and this causes all types of legal problems. The End For-Profit Prisons Act goal is to end the contracting of federal prison facilities.
3. Big Business Loopholes
You always hear congress talking about getting rid of the loopholes in policies that give the rich even more profits and their is almost nothing you can do about it. There is currently the Close Tax Loopholes That Outsource America Jobs Act but it probably will not make it. So big business can take the jobs away and keep the profits from it.
4. Slavery Still Going Strong
Yup, you saw that right we are still dealing with the issue of slavery in 2018. Sadly slavery affects many children because they can not fight for themselves and no one else wants to fight for them. This is not a myth slavery is still happening and we need to get rid of it now. Congress recently brought up the Raising Awareness of Modern Slavery resolution but that is not enough. We need to start doing more research as costumers buying products so we do not fuel this evil.
5. Bleeding Students Dry
It is no secret that college is a mountain of debt just waiting to happen to the current and future generations. What school are doing to some students is just not right. How is it that some one around the age of 18 that has probably never had a job is suppose to be prepared to going into thousands of dollars of debt. We need to be reasonable and stop raising the price every 3 months. This has brought about the Students Before Profit Acts to help keep these student from a lifetime of debt.
How did this happen
You may be wondering how some of these actions are taking place and you will not like the answer. Anything can become a business and once that happens money is the only concern. We need to stop making everything into a business or everything around us will only be about the money and that can never cause good.
