My product Nike Shoes
They are made in these three countries because these countries do not have strict labor laws so Nike can have the people of these countries working in sweatshops for 7 cents an hour. Most of the workers work 70-84 hours a week. The solution to this is increasing the wages of the workers and informing them of what workers rights they should have.
With living conditions so bad many sweatshop worker attempt to kill themselves by jumping out of the windows of the sweatshop. To counteract this the owners have put up safety nets around the sweatshop.
Natural resources these countries have
Chinese Coal Miner
Vietnamese iron mine
Fighting for better pay
Final Product and How It Affects Each Category of Globalization
Environmental: Nike shoes affect the environment because it is made out of materials from the Earth furthermore depleting our natural resources.
Cultural: It affects people culture because in the countries where they are made it encourages other companies to pay their workers little to nothing which doesn't allow the cultures to progress financially and socially.
Economic: it affects economics because the people working in Nike sweatshops are paid almost nothing which hurts them financially and makes them struggle to survive.
