Pledge to end guestworker exploitation and create living wage jobs

    1. Petition by

      National Guestworker Alliance

This year, the Obama administration vindicated the student guestworkers who occupied Hershey’s “student sweatshop” by shutting down Hershey’s labor recruiter CETUSA and fining Hershey’s subcontractors almost $300,000 for violations of federal safety and health law.

Hershey’s “student sweatshop” was just one of the facilities where Hershey’s employs student guestworkers. We expect a new wave of students to arrive to work at facilities like the Hershey Lodge and Chocolate World any day now.

On Monday, 3/20/12, Hershey’s board chairman James Nevels is going to give the keynote address to a conference of the 1% on corporate social responsibility.

Tell Hershey’s chairman: Talk is cheap. Real responsibility means signing a pledge to end exploitation and create dignified, living wage jobs for local workers.
