Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


This project will inform about why there is so many low wages jobs in USA with poor conditions. There will be investigated, informed through statistics, and further explained from articles. In the project there will take point in globalization, unions and lobbyism. Guy Standing explains how globalization creates an internalization of labor, which helps laying a pressure on companies' competitiveness. An analysis of an investigation by Martin Maximino explains the influence difference between the average citizen and the economic elite. It concludes through the analysis that companies lower their labor cost by changing the jobs to be more part time and flexible. The unions is simultaneously decreasing, which gives the labor less pressure on the companies to give them better wages. Lobbyism is a reason for the unions decrease in political influence. The companies hire the lobbyist's, which creates the companies more political influence that is used to decrease the unions' possibility in mobilizing and creating an economic pressure on the companies. The labor has then more poor conditions and receives lower wages because the unions cant created influence on companies because of lobbyism.
