LABR 3220 - Global Sweatshops, Global Struggles
This course explores the past and present of sweated work in various industries in the Global North and South. We explore circumstances that support sweatshops, including off-shoring and the new international division of labour; migrant, child and female labour forces; global supply chains and the role of retailers and contractors. We also compare and evaluate strategies to eliminate sweatshops, including NGO activities, government regulations, consumer boycotts and the international labour, student and social justice movements. Prerequisite: [a grade of "C" or better in three credit hours of 1000 level Labour Studies] or written consent of the Labour Studies coordinator.
