Global commodity chains can have poor labor standards which leave workers to be exploited and forced to work in horrible conditions for little pay. The exploitation of these workers is causing the rich to get richer and the poor to get poorer. The barriers that are in place with free trade that are supposed to be eliminated by globalization aren’t exactly removed. There are many requirements and standards/expectations for free trade through globalization that are hard to meet. Another major disadvantage to globalization is that it is taking away jobs from developed countries and those jobs are being relocated to developing countries where production costs will be much lower.

    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.
