Word Origin and History for nonexploitation
exploitation
1803, "productive working" of something, a positive word among those who used it first, though regarded as a Gallicism, from Fr. exploitation, from exploiter (see exploit (v.)). Bad sense developed by 1850s, in part from French, also perhaps influenced by U.S. anti-slavery writing; the insulting word was hurled at activities it once had crowned as praise.
