Certified coffee, rightless workers

The fifth issue of Monitor – a newsletter that publishes Repórter Brasil’s studies on industries and production chains – reveals that even certified coffee farms still fail to guarantee workers’ rights.

The issue published in December 2016 enumerates several labor infractions by coffee farms in the southeastern state of Minas Gerais. 

Included in the report are claims of farms employing unregistered workers, paying below minimum wage, not fully paying workers, and not providing mandatory benefits.
