Multinational Companies and Fairtrade Evaluation.

Extracts from this document...


My Research Evaluation The trading system in the UK is based on free trade and it is very unfair. MNC (Multinational Companies) such as Nike's headquarters are based on MEDCs (More Economically Developed Countries) such as UK, USA and their companies are based on LEDCs (Less Economically Developed Countries) such as Bangladesh. They treat their company workers very differently and unfairly by paying them very small amount of money. This sort of treatment is over looked by the WTO (World Trade Organisation).

In my opinion, this trading system needs to stop now or the owners of MNCs should pay their workers higher and make it fairer. This is not going to be easy and will take a lot of time but it needs to change now. ...read more.
