The The labor laws of a country

The Global population continues to rise and fall, but the birth rate is drastically higher than the death rate. Populations in all countries are being affected in all different ways, and there are several reasons for the increase or decrease of the population in these countries. Such reasons include poverty, lack of labor laws and access to education, these are all contributing to the rise and fall of the global population.  Populations in all countries, impoverished and wealthy alike, are affected by poverty and lack of labor laws which could be resolved with access to education, if it were to be made available.The American job market has been on the decline for many years and in recent ones, an incline. Reasons for this has been debated but is more than likely because of our own labor laws. The labor laws of a country greatly contribute to its job market, it persuades companies to set up shop in that country. In America, we have labor laws meant to provide a standard of living that would not endanger an individual but obviously, the price to pay for this is jobs. This whole dynamic originally started with the Industrial Revolution. In the 1820s, the first factories were built, ushering in this age of innovation, many found easy work, but also found disappointment. Workplace conditions and policies were infamously atrocious, infested with all types of diseases and only paying the bare minimum for it to be called a “job”, the Industrial Revolution truly was the worst time to be considered part of the Working Class. It can’t be only regarded as terrible though, as many innovations came in that period of time, including the mass introduction of electricity (1890) and the first mass produced assembly line items (1908). Soon, the Progressive Era was ushered in and brought better conditions in the workplace, minimum wage and other common wants for the then, modern worker. These drastic changes ultimately caused the US job market to plummet for a long period of time, only recently pulling itself up and rebuilding. The question is however, where did these jobs leave to?Have you ever looked at a piece of clothing and wondered “why was this made in China?” or “how come this was made in India?”. There is a good reason for this, just a not well known one. Companies that give up on manufacturing in wealthy countries,like the United States, naturally gravitate to poorer countries, mostly because of their relatively non existent labor laws. They set up shop there and then recruit the inhabitants of that country to work for them, in conditions comparable to the Industrial Revolution. Now you might say “that’s absolutely terrible, someone must do something about this!”, but not so fast, as has disastrous effects. Impoverished countries already have enough to deal with, including a population that is growing exponentially larger, which is directly related to the poverty being created by their lack of labor laws. So the obvious answer seems to be to create labor laws, right? Wrong. As many worker unions have already found out, this actually digs a country even further into poverty, creating more unnecessary suffering. When a country implements labor laws to protect its citizens, the companies operating there, simply leave. They don’t have to stay, and it’s easier than paying a lot more than they need to. This dynamic has always existed and creates the dilemma the world is dealing with today. Even in the 1900s, this happened. In 1945, the United Nations was formed to promote peace and equal human rights to all. Obviously, it has not turned out how they planned or at least been a quick process, as the world has been at relative peace since their creation, excluding the Korean War (1950), Vietnam War (1954) and the War on Terrorism (2001). Under their watchful eye however, populations are increasing at terrifyingly fast rate because of this seemingly impossible to get rid of poverty. So how is this fixed?Many solutions have surfaced in the past to fix this problem. One of them, probably the simplest doesn’t even offer a solution. A somewhat accepted answer says time will sort this out. Eventually countries governments will be able to pull themselves up and create jobs as well as services for their citizens (This is a general theme across all answers, of which there are only two generally accepted ones). Another common answer says that access to education will essentially fast track this process of modernization, minimizing suffering. The only downside is that this would most likely cost billions, or possibly trillions of dollars (USD) to even attempt to implement modern schooling systems across the impoverished world. There would most likely be much public support for a project of this size and commendability, bringing down costs considerably. You also have to consider however the possibility that no country would want to do this, considering its economic gain (which wouldn’t be a whole lot). Either way, both answers to unravelling this twisted dynamic are both only theoretical. It is unknown whether either of the these would actually help pull a struggling country up. Still, the long term gain for humanity greatly outweighs any cons that might come along with attempting to fix this. Exponential population growth is a serious problem, with the world population expected to reach 10 billion by mid 21st century. The world must work together to curb this disastrous possibility, if not every country and every citizen will suffer.
