Globally Improving Workers' Rights

Fair Labor Association

Globally, workers’ rights is a current social concern. All workers should be treated fairly and as equals in the workplace. Employees should not have to worry about their security or heath due to their job. It is important that non-engaged stakeholders adopt the Fair Labor Association's position because they have the power to help make a difference in the aspect of workers’ rights.

Workers’ rights are legal and human rights that are in association with the labor relations between workers and employers.Fair labor includes appropriate work ages, reasonable amount of pay, and recordkeeping.(citations from: http://definitions.uslegal.com/e/employee-rights/ and http://www.dol.gov/elaws/esa/flsa/screen5.asp)

Globally Improving Workers' Rights

Why ?

“Of an estimated 215 child laborers around the globe: approximately 114 million (53%) are in Asia and the Pacific; 14 million (7%) live in Latin America; and 65 million (30%) live in sub-Saharan Africa.”“Over one-quarter of all workers are low-wage workers."(Citations from: https://www.continuetolearn.uiowa.edu/laborctr/child_labor/about/what_is_child_labor.html and http://www.dol.gov/dol/aboutdol/history/herman/reports/futurework/conference/lowwage/section3.htm)

Facts

In order to assist the Fair Labor Association, the non-engaged stakeholders can help raise awareness by avoiding the purchase of materials made with unfair labor. Furthermore, they can help the association campaign against abusing workers’ rights. With effort and purpose, people should make a conscious, ethical choice to speak out against workplace injustices or mistreatment.
