Hidden Face of Globalization
In the global economy, corporations demand enforceable laws - intellectual property and copyright laws - backed up by sanctions to protect their products. However, when we ask these same companies, "Can't we also protect the rights of the 16-year-old who made the product?," The companies respond: "No. That would be an impediment to free trade!"
Young garment workers in Bangladesh share their hard experiences working for companies like Disney and Wal-Mart. Where offen they need to work between 16 until 20 hour daily and no one have right to object it. Beside lost thier real life with family, they even also offen dont get the correct salary and get treat badly if someone dare to ask for it. While the same workers from same company in US enjoy all the workers right, get good paid and good life.
