Stop the corporate exploitation of developing countries

I think we all agree on one – that everybody who comes to Europe should find a safe harbour in here. However we should not end on that. The migration crisis stopped but it might happen again. We need to help the developin countries to finally “spread the wings”, create their own strong economies – it is not a dream, this all might happen with just a little help from us – the EU. The European Comission came with an idea called the “Juncker plan” – that’s great but it is not enough. In my opinion the european community should finally look deeper into the matter of corporate exploatation of developing countries (as the tittle says). The thing is that big brands/comanies like Apple, H&M are getting benefits from people in Africa, Asia, South Africa. In 2012 the 150 workers of Foxconn – the huge electronics company whcich products electronics for Apple, Intel etc. – thretaned to commit the massive suicide if the wroking conditions do not improve. In 2012 one worker commited suicide and in 2013 the three workes jumped out of the window. After that every window in a factory was secured by the net wchich would prevent the further suicides. That’s why the EU should make it clear that all products which are going to be sell on our teritorry come from reliable source where the working conditions are fulfilling at least minimal standards. There should be a special labour agency wchich would monitor the factories outside the EU by unexpected visitations a few times per year. The agency should also check if the employees get the fair salary for their work. I know that it sounds complicated but it would be a huge, amazing step in our fight for social justice in Europe. This would also make the competition between companies fair because small, righteous, entrepreneurs would have the same chances as big companies who are using those who are desperate.
