Rich people are so disconnected from reality they genuinely think “Okay but if we end slave labour your snack might be slightly more expensive” is a good arguement
But here’s the worse part. Maybe I haven’t read the right parts, but all the law is asking for is REPORTING. Not that it has to stop, they just need to be honest about how much slavery. Which they don’t want to do because people will make a stink. So they’re complaining about the reporting of it because they know what will happen, despite that there’s a huge population of dedicated consumers that either won’t know or won’t care.
