Discuss findings of report on current industry practics
Greenhouse (2013) illustrates that “retailers to stop doing business with any factory that refuses to make necessary safety improvements, and for workers and their unions to have a substantial voice in factory safety.” These stores protect the workers do not face the unfair agreement and correct the worth safe standard. Therefore, most fashion industries, manufactories, retail store and small shopping mall willing help to change the environment and receive workers complain when they think they are working in unsafe conditions. After that, customers should check their products are made from some developing countries which cannot provide great and safe environment for their workers; they need to refuse these kinds of merchandise. Then all the governments need to have the serious check in a period because some manager will cheat the companies and do not want to give compensation to harmed or died workers. For instance, the New York Time (2013) suggests that most industries need to choose which countries they will set up their building and should draft the serious law to protect the workers' safe and decrease their damage when they face the accident. As a result, more and more famous companies agree that they do not disobey the rules, provide the well conditions and equipment for workers to protect their life and safe. These companies also encourage other companies join this treaty to improve the plan and make the fair world for everyone.
To sum up, I think International Organizations try to improve the work environment around the world; they want to provide the safe conditions for workers. So, they encourage famous industries, retail store and small shopping mall to join this plan and obey the rule when they willing help to solve the problem. After that, all governments should compatible with the treaty and do the serious check for all companies which need to ensure their environment and report. Finally, customers need to check the products which countries are make and must refuse the merchandises are made by developing countries which cannot provide safe and well environments for workers.
