think of it this way, if it profits them to enslave someone and they can be sure to get away with it however if the bottom line was freedom, then
they would not infringe upon a freedom even if it meant profit, it shouldn't be to surprising how often a business/corporation is left to make a
decision of infringe on someones freedom? OR lose profit,
What you're not understanding is that slavery, properly, is defined as being held against your will from the time of your capture, purchase or
birth, and deprived of the right to leave, to refuse to work, or to demand compensation
Hershey's is not infringing on anyone's freedom-- they are granted the freedom to leave or refuse work according to the stated compensation. When
they are denied that freedom you can use terms like slavery and exploitation, until then, you're denying the company's economical freedom to hire
workers according to their own dictations and policies. You're favoring political rights, which are based on economical rights, to release the
workers of their own responsibility to decide for themselves and holding a business hostage because of it.
Don't like your compensation? Ask for a raise or find a new job. Most teenagers would be happy to fill these positions because a paycheck is a
paycheck. I know I certainly would, it is quite difficult to find work right now and these immigrants are being recruited at the tax payer's expense
and compensated at the tax payer's expense.
So, no, that's not the illusion i'm being fed-- that's ignorance of economics.
also dont forget, there is no freemarket when the whole market is dominated by monopolies
And monopolies exist because a central planner (in this case, government) keeps them in business (bailouts, etc.,) and shields them from the market
forces that establish who succeeds or fails. Bad business or bad practices would not succeed without some government subsidies or assistance; no one
would want to work for them, hence they must go outside the country to recruit. The government is protecting them and the government is funding it.
