Work, Unemployment, and Poverty
Choose a major transnational corporation that is
headquartered in the United States and find information regarding the other
countries this corporation has offices or plants. Research what the corporation
does at these locations (the type of business conducted) and whom they hire.
In 250 words or more, summarize this information in the
initial discussion as well as answers to the following questions:
1. How does the corporation affect the people in these other
countries, including effects on the community as well as the people who work
for the corporation?
2. What are the possible effects on the United States of
this corporation’s transnational locations (such as reduction of U.S. jobs)?
Then go to the website of the International Labour Organization at www.ilo.org.
Conduct a search for the transnational organization you researched to discover
any labor issues related to this corporation. Post your findings and answers on
the discussion board.
