DOL OSHA citations against Walmart supplier C.J.’s Seafood

Despite threats to their families, guestworkers in Louisiana went on strike in June 2012 to expose forced labor on the Walmart supply chain. In Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, Walmart supplier C.J.’s Seafood subjected 40 Mexican guestworkers on H-2B visas to forced labor, stolen wages, unfair labor practices and discrimination—from which Walmart profited.

In July 2012, in response to an official complaint by the NGA, the Department of Labor cited C.J.’s Seafood for multiple serious violations of federal safety and health rules, and fined the company $21,550.
