Abstract:

"Knowing that information about the conditions of workers around the world can influence what consumers buy and what governments regulate, Dara O'Rourke, Archon Fung, and Charles Sabel argue that making such information widely available is the best way to improve conditions. Although watchdog agencies monitor workplaces and press corporations to raise labor standards, these agencies are not enough; only coordinated action by consumers, monitors, unions, and nongovernmental organizations will threaten profits and force those who own corporations to care about the lives of those who work for them. Activists, scholars, and officials of the International Labor Organization and the World Bank respond to this provocative and hopeful proposal."--Jacket.
