Globalization... the growing interdependence and interaction among people, companies and corporations in various locations around the world.
It's as if the world is shrinking! Some say we live in a global village now.
But you have to remember that today all the clothing and footwear on sale in our shops is made in poorer countries, where wages are lower.
People, for example, who make our clothes in other countries, are young girls from rural villages with little education!
We can no longer tolerate sweatshops!! These factories were girls work long hours for low pay must be closed!
Companies promise to make sure conditions are okay, but they are still many abuses.
Is it fair that girls are exploited to keep us looking good?
Many LEDCs do not have strong laws to protect their people and the environment. So, factories prefer to make their products in poor countries. I hope the G20 developing nations (more than 20) will have a stronger voice and they will protect their people.
Baseball caps and jeans everywhere...and fast food and fizzy drinks...and TV shows that undermine our values...now children think that it is the right culture...
Poor countries!! you have more to say....through the G20 group of developing nations!
