We must admit that many global companies or multinational companies of the U.S. and Europe operating in the developing countries are using many local workers under very inhuman conditions like low-wages,long-labor hours and very few holidays.

They are severly exploited by the capitalists and managers. Forming labour unions is not admmited. Therefore, they are compelled to obey orders and instructions presented by the Big Capital. Their main objective is to maximize profit by reducing labor cost as much as possible. This is the one reason which global companies should be blamed. My arguments to be continued to the next section.

Any company, multinational or NOT should be blamed for violating human rights. Kind of a one answer question. ;-)

Hi ALofRI,

I interpret your point as being that commercial enterprises which involves employing people should not exist in any shape or form whatsoever.

All organised business ventures, as we can observe for instance, in China and the U.S.A, should be abolished.

I feel that such a novel concept should be accompanied with a detailed and comprehensive explanation as to how societies should be organised and from where the tax revenue would be generated to provide vital public utilities such as health services, social housing, unemployment benefits, education, defense and infrastructure development.

Your experience and astuteness should enable you to recognise that it is not acceptable to simply criticise the status-quo without illustrating how your brave new world would be organised.

This is my second argument of the debate. The important fact is that multinational companies are exerting outrageous influence in local economy and society without listening to not only the demands of workers but to the request of local governments.

Their power is stronger than that of local governments. The important thing ia that Big Capital bribes local political leaders to conduct their business smoothly not to be interrupted by the anti-company movements committed by local people and community leaders. Mitigating an illegal act by Big Capital is urgently required.

I believe that U.S. Alien Tort Claims Act contributes to reducing the heinous act by the Big Business. Arguments to be continued.

Side: They should be blamed.

Once more, blamed for what?

Giving employment to the world's endless herds of sheepeople who would otherwise starve to death or die from disease as they do in their 10s of 1000s every day in Africa?

Are you accusing the Multi-nationals of teaching the great unwashed masses new skills and disciplines which increases their market value in this highly competitive world?

Are you suggesting that the multi-nationals should consolidate their activities to their countries of origin and only export their goods to nations without providing any benefits?

Are you unable to convert your vague assertion into a more tangible, unemotional argument?

Side: They should not be blamed.

I don't know what cleanspace means, but here are some possibilities:

Preventing child labor

Preventing forced labor

Allowing labor organizing

Environmental regulations

Some might also include: worker-safety, maximum hours, minimum pay, etc., but, to me, those are more about fair trade than violating human rights, per se.

Should multinational companies be blamed for violating human right ?

The globalist politicians who created this system to get cheap labor for their lobbyists are to blame the most.

Hi there,

How long ago is it since these globalist politicians created the system which exploits workers?

Why do you feel that the populations of countries such as the U.S.A., the U.K., most European nations and Asian countries do not benefit from the existence of multi-national corporations on their soil?

What is your alternative suggestion(s) how people should be employed.

If for just one instance we removed foreign investment by multi-national corporations in the U.K., such as the Japanese motor manufacturing industry, unemployment and widespread poverty would be the inevitable outcome.

What are your suggestions to avoid this human tragedy and the ensuing civil unrest such a scenario would spawn?

Side: They should be blamed.

2 suggestions:

- creating fair-trade compacts which require labor and environmental protections

- establishing a universal basic income which allows people the choice of avoiding exploitative work

They do benefit. They are also hurt by it, so there's a payoff vs. a loss. The loss is greater than the payoff. The loss was exemplified when medicine the West needed during the pandemic was held and hoarded by the very nations the West had pushed manufacturing to for cheap labor and costs.
