WGS 233 - Sweatshops in the World Economy


This course engages students in the controversy regarding sweatshops and their role in the global economy. We ask why sweatshops have returned to the United States, the richest economy in the world. We also ask what role the spread of sweatshops in the developing world played in the alleviation and perpetuation of poverty.
