ILRIC634 Media Response Essay The US industrial trend of the outsourcing of manufacturing jobs to lower-cost offshore  jurisdictions within the developing world and its overall effects on working conditions has been a  controversial topic as globalization has taken hold. The issue was once again center stage  when Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota proposed a Bill to congress that would ban the  U.S. sale of imported goods made in foreign sweatshops that violated their domestic labor laws.  It would also impose a $10,000 fine for each violation, and allow U.S. retailers to sue their  competitors in U.S. courts if their competitors sell merchandise produced in these abusive  sweatshops. Two experts on the topic, Daniel Griswold and Charles Kernaghan, provide  persuasive yet opposing opinions in their testimonies on the proposed bill. Griswold conveys his  opposition to the bill in a rational economist manner, using effective, sensible and broad facts  and trends to support his points. While Kernaghan, a distinguished labor activist, utilizes his  personal experiences dealing with horrific sweatshop working conditions to stimulate emotions  to support his arguments.  Griswold claims that overall global working conditions have improved since massive  expansion of globalization and widespread participation in the global market. The countries who  have utilized the global market and free trade have received a large increase in quality of life,  compensation and working conditions. He claims that globalization has cut in half the number of  people living in total poverty. Developing countries who have fully embraced globalization and
