7:07 am
decisions like this one where there's a bit more behind than just moral issues there is a pretty clear policy at a lot of u.s. corporations that managers are not supposed to have relationships with employees who report directly or indirectly to them so obviously the company is one to avoid that decisions might be influenced or old sold that some of the managers take advantage of there. and we've seen it in the pocketbook couple of years and those are the past years again and again that we had some high ranking sea always from companies like boeing packard or priceline who had to leave their positions because of their relationships with employees what does this resignation mean for intel what's the consequence. it's not a pleasant day for brian cox on agenda it's not

a pleasant day for intel either he actually has done a pretty good job in the past couple of years transforming intel away from the p.c. business more to simi conductors for smartphones for video games and other areas and he did start with the firm in one thousand nine hundred eighty two and he became c.e.o. five years ago so the stock of intel lost a good two percent here in the thursday session and was that intel was the second biggest loser in the dow jones industrial average and there is talk that actually they have a pretty strong line of possible people filling in the position but well as i said to him he did a pretty good job in the past couple of years and that's why investors at least for now showed a negative reaction is go to new york for us thank you so much. inequality is rampant around the world especially in the food sector

a study by the international charity oxfam shows the biggest retailers squeeze the biggest buck they can out of farmers the supermarkets control the demand and prices in this supply chain they decide how much they pay for goods produced by small scale farmers as a result millions of them are living well below the poverty line brazilian orange farmers earn only half the country's living wage kenyan greeny of farmers don't fare well either and female farmers are worst hit than men it's evident in the sectors they work and again only half of the living wage man so what's better here is more. when it comes to german supermarkets as with other global supermarkets we find that suffering human suffering as a secret ingredient often in the food that we buy in these supermarkets the poverty wages we have just seen so people are unable to feed their family or to go and pay

a doctor despite long and hard working hours we've also found extreme physical violence against women on plantations and both africa producing wine for german supermarkets or the oppression of trade unionists in ecuador producing bananas we look now with this study to see are these super markets doing enough against six try taishan economic exploitation and human rights violations in their supply chain and it seems like a jew many didn't really score on a score well on that point germany supermarkets scored really bad who's to blame the supermarket or the customer actually the ones cheap food. the customer often doesn't know what he or she is buying because supermarkets are so in transparent when you go to the supermarket and look at the produce available to us i mean let's be honest we can't see how it has been produced and so by markets are
7:11 am
not forthcoming with that they scored particularly badly in our scoring also because there are so in transparent leaving the consumer in that in the dark ok so what can i do then as a customer to improve the situation in the producing countries then. there are no immediate and easy steps for the most important thing is to signal supermarket that you care how the food is produced so to take some concrete actions a person can do both as a consumer but also as a citizen firstly go to your local store and ask the store manager where does the food come from where the nice pineapple coming from and how do you ensure that it's a produce in a fair and humane way. secondly look for a trustworthy set of occasion labels not all that good but fair trade for example the office an opportunity to be sure that this product is produced fair and most importantly it's sending a signal to the super market that as a consumer and a citizen you refuse to accept that human suffering is an ingredient in the food
