Business and Human Rights in the US
Globalization has afforded private corporations the potential to branch out and expand business across the world. In doing so, many businesses, especially in the United States, have turned a blind eye to the basic rights of those creating goods, often overseas. Workers are often underpaid, over worked, exploited, abused by employees, and forced to work in dangerous conditions. Big corporations, such as Walmart, have even been implicated in violating labor rights of overseas workers and in practicing gender discrimination.
