Sweatshops and Unions

New Media  | 29 de abril de 2011  | Vistas: 31

Benjamin Powell shares the results of his research about sweatshops in Guatemala.  He comments that Guatemalan workers are not unpleased with their current working conditions and value to work where they obtain more advantages. He was also surprised to discover how workers where appreciative of extra hours.  Powell states that many countries have undergone this form of labor and afterwards successfully bloomed. Finally, he stresses on the rights of norms of disclosure regarding the hazzards in their workplaces.
