The Spark is the counterbalance to corporations and governments that defy the public interest. Users post and vote on PROBLEMS that we face as a global community. The most popular problems are voted to the top. Users then post and vote on SOLUTIONS so that the community can take ACTION. Once The Spark reaches critical mass, the global community will have a voice that is too loud to ignore. Spark the change YOU want to see in the world. Sign up to our mailing list.
As of September 10, 2012 there have been 32 verified cases of negligence involving child labor and unsafe working conditions. Most recently, the company's factories in China failed an independent safety inspection. Company X's profits last quarter were over $3B USD. Manufacturing an X shouldn't require human suffering.
Let's send a clear message to the CEO of X: we demand ethical treatment of all employees in their supply chain, including employees of manufacturing partners. We want to know how and when they will mandate fair treatment, and we will start by publicly asking the CEO of company X to commit to a specific plan/timeframe. Let's get one million people to view this issue to ensure that we get an adequate response!
