ILRIC634 Media Response Essay The capitalistic trend of the outsourcing of manufacturing jobs to inexpensive  sweatshops in developing countries and its overall effects on working conditions has been a  controversial topic since the development of a global market. The issue was once again  publicized 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 testimonies about 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 point. While Kernaghan, a distinguished labor activist, utilizes his personal  experiences dealing with horrific sweatshop working conditions to stimulate emotions to support  his point.  Griswold claims that overall global working conditions have improved since massive  expansion of globalization and the almost universal acceptance of 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 depicts that globalization has cut the  number of people living in total poverty in half. Developing countries who have fully embraced
