Corporate globalization is an affront to workers’ rights all over the world. Jobs with Justice aims to reverse neoliberal economic trade policies that only serve to make the rich richer and the poor poorer and allow for free trade, not fair trade. Jobs with Justice works for global justice and against the global race to the bottom.
A globalized economy benefits corporations and employers at the expense of workers. The increase of corporate outsourcing of employees has dramatically impacted the wages, benefits, safety, and job security for all employees working inside and outside of the United States. Companies close factories, firms and work places and move them out of local communities and into locations where they can pay a lower wage. Corporations are then allowed to circumvent US labor laws in order to reap the maximum profit. This is made increasingly possible by free trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) that continue to be pushed through. Due to increased corporate globalization, many of our campaigns now have an international focus.
