Consuelo, Dominican Republic- Haitian sugarcane workers in the fields near the village of Consuelo, Dominican Republic work clearing a field after the primary harvest. A U.S. Department of Labor report issued 27 Sept 13 "finds evidence of apparent and potential violations of labor law in the Dominican sugar sector, concerning: (1) acceptable conditions of work with respect to minimum wages, hours of work, and occupational safety and health, such as payments below the minimum wage, 12-hour work days, seven-day work weeks, lack of potable water, and the absence of safety equipment; (2) a minimum age for the employment of children and the prohibition and elimination of the worst forms of child labor; and (3) a prohibition on the use of any form of forced or compulsory labor."
