Over the past few months, both Republicans and Democrats have been fighting against the cruel treatment of workers in China’s Xinjiang region. Legislation intended to ban certain goods produced in China by forced laborers, especially religious minorities such as the Uyghur Muslims already has bipartisan support in Congress. The proposed bill called the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act would force companies sending goods to the U.S. to closely examine their supply chains. Companies would not be allowed to import goods from the Xinjiang region unless they can prove to customers the goods were not created with forced labor. However, despite wide support from lawmakers, several liberal, multinational companies have supply chains deeply embedded in China and therefore are pushing back against the legislation.

Why is Coke on this list? They are not lobbying against the bill and are auditing their supply chain.
