We have been looking at some of the positive effects of the globalisation of industry in year 7 and 8. We looked at how globalisation means cheaper prices for us and how it offers some people the chance to earn a good wage in the poorest counties of the world. Of course its not always like that. We have already discussed the environmental cost of globalisation, but what about the exploitation of workers. What makes a fair wage and what are good working conditions. of course we can never get a good feel for what its like to work in a factory for long hours and low wages without trying it for ourselves however this game may help us to understand a little bit.
