like Hugo Boss (Germany) and Mothercare (UK), operate several mills in southern India and some of these mills located in Tamil Nadu, were recently investigated for enslaving workers and forcing labor. These factories employ both male and females and it has been discovered that many female workers are illegally enslaved by their factory owners. Women are confined to the factory grounds and have minimal contact with anyone outside the premises for prolonged periods of time, even years as some have reported. When these women are granted permission to leave, many are required to be accompanied by security employed by the factory. When confronted about these illegal and unethical treatment, mill owners acknowledge that they do restrict the freedom of their female workers, but lay blame on the rural location of its factories and say that it is necessary to ensure the safety of their workers. Holding one against their will and forcing such strict labor on anyone is unethical practice and violates human rights. Slavery is illegal and is exploiting and degrading of human beings and should not be taken lightly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
