Today we are connected to each other in many ways than ever before due to a lot of our technological advancements. Products and services are not only available in one place any more but rather now increasingly available in all parts of the world. Globalization has increased the strength of our economy and in others around the world. There are many benefits and advantages to globalization but not everything is perfect. A lot of issues have arisen on how it affects our economy so there are defiantly a lot of considerations on globalization.
One of the most general complaints will be that it has made those who are wealthy even richer and those in poverty even poorer. It continues to be a great success for those business heads and stakeholders but has deprived the workers. These individuals can also be seen as a country as a whole where some countries are afraid ...view middle of the document...
This leads to great disregard for human rights to where a country does the best it can to benefit itself.
Globalization has also affected the women of these countries because of gender inequality in some southern countries. Male workers are usually getting the better low paid jobs and better treatment whereas the female employees are given the worst jobs. As the expansion of these
corporations keep growing so does the practices that they implement on women. Of course they are bringing job opportunities where there never was but its injustice to deprive women mentally and physically.
On the same aspect this also deprives children from their childhood and education because they are allowed to work at such a young age. Most families are not making enough to support their children so the idea of letting your child work has been the only option. Most time these places are unhealthy or sanitary which can lead to many illnesses. Basically making children prisoners where a lot of safety standards are ignored to be able to keep cost down on goods.
Globalization has been also positive to where we have defiantly came to many technological advancements and has brought up many poor countries to a better state. The positives can outweigh the bad but the negative issues should still not be ignored. Many say that it may seem negative to us but to them they are accustomed to a worse lifestyle and globalization promotes a better way of living. Just because we have higher standards does mean we should still see this as an ok thing to overlook.
Globalization has brought much success to a lot of great companies for example Apple. They are a great example of how globalization really works to benefit many people around the world. The way we live has always been an ongoing advancement to where now we can communicate with anyone from anywhere. We can all say this has really made us the nation that we came to be and maybe these corporations who are really wealthy should invest in at least helping out these countries by offering a better and safer work environment.
