Chocolate and African Child Labor

Chocolate and African Child Labor

Business, General
Most people in the West love eating chocolate, yet have little idea about where the cocoa beans come from that make up modern chocolate products like chocolate bars and cocoa powder. Chocolate and Child Labour It turns out over 50 percent of the cocoa beans used in commercial production come from The Ivory Coast in Africa, or Cote d’Ivoire (the government of this country discourages the use of the English translation Ivory Coast, preferring the French.) Unfortunately, lots of child labour bordering on slave labour is used in these cocoa plantations.

Business
Working in the arts is not a path to financial security or a job for life. Being self-employed in the arts is even more risky.

With grown-up responsibilities like a house or a family it becomes even harder. The irony is that art is risk. The only sure way to fail is to do nothing. If creative business owners don’t take risks, it’s practically impossible to get ahead in their career. It’s a simple truth, but a hard reality.
