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 corporationâ€™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.
