The impact of working on the Global Assembly Line is grave and negative for many reasons: workers were paid $4 a day compared to $5/hr. in the U.S., they experience horrible working conditions in which they would inhale fumes and other toxins because they were not properly protected, and they were forced to meet quotas that often had them working 12+ hour days, or else they risked being fired. Losing this job could also lead to not being able to ever find another considering that the workers are now extremely worn down and could be very ill because of the working conditions. 5. The working-class people of the U.S. are greatly impacted by globalization because they are losing their jobs. In an early scene of the film we see women protesting because they have been laid off due to their jobs being moved elsewhere.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
