Relating Global Labor & Accountability
Thesis and/or Research Questions:
In our world today, many people enjoy goods but never really considered who, where or how they are manufactured. An example would be chocolate. Everyone loves chocolate, adults and children alike. But not everyone knows that 80% of the cocoa comes from Cote d’Lvoire and Ghana, harvested through child labor. We hold responsibility in a way, as consumers, to help solve this problem of unjust labor and that starts by realize that it exists and is prevalent in areas across the global. Ignorance is not bliss.
Five keywords: Global supply chain, local human rights standards, labor, globalization, facilities
My research and analysis will also take from Harvey’s argument of problems with social justice that have resulted from recent changes in geographical divisions of labor, in the environment, and in the pace and quality of urbanization and consumerism. Points will also be stated and expanded from Timo’s findings of repercussions to certain living environments and nature due to production.
Methodology and Form:
The website aims to expose this labor and ultimately for us to feel social responsible and perhaps as we become the future leaders, do something about it. We need to consider our role in this unjustice and not allow all this unfair labor to happen.
