The Exploitation of Workers by Corporations
My ISU topic is The Exploitation of Workers by Corporations. I chose this topic because I wanted to look into the corporate industry to try and understand why their actions are what they are along with the possibility and realism of change. Throughout I specifically look into the garment industry in regards to sweatshops. This includes the conditions of the sweatshops themselves, how the workers are treated physically as well as mentally and their lack of pay leading to their way of life. There is also insight on the common acts of outsourcing or offshoring by powerhouse consumer countries like the United States and what some companies are doing to bring jobs back home. As a result of this issue the most powerful and effective way to fight against these corrupt corporations is on consumers themselves by not supporting the companies who have their products made at the cost of someone's basic humanitarian rights.
