For our project we made political cartoons that represent our projects. I did my project on sweatshops.
For this project we studied globalization and looked into different topics, I chose the topic sweatshops because I was interested in it and I didn't really know what that was about. I only knew that there was tons of people out there who were very upset about it and I wanted to know more. After doing some research I learned that sweatshops can lead to good and bad. Your probably wondering what a sweatshop is, well a sweatshop is a factory where people work there under very low wages and work for long hours. For my op-ed, I talked about the pros and cons about sweatshops but the main question I'm covering is why do we need more sweatshops. To know more about this topic you can read my op-ed which is located right above this description.
During this project I learned a lot more about what's going on in the world for an example I chose to learn more about sweatshops. I didn't have any background knowledge about this topic. I was excited to learn more but at the same time I was concerned why many people were upset about it. For one of my take-aways it has to be the stories that the workers told were about how they actually enjoyed the pay and it's better than nothing because it helps a lot.
