This book explains how three major mechanisms of globalization - international trade, international migration, and the activities of multinational companies - have altered working conditions and labor rights around the world during the 20th century. Drawing on analyses of a database on international labor conditions assembled for this project and a growing research literature on globalization and labor conditions, the book finds that trade, migration, and
multinational companies are associated with improvements in world labor conditions.

Review quote

An impressive spectrum of the existing evidence about how globalization is affecting labor. ...makes effective use of the current literature and research dealing with globalization. The book's reference section reflects extensive research and can serve as a valuable compilation of information on the existing research and debate. For some key aspects of globalization that involve underground economies and activities for which data are very limited or missing, the
author provides extensive discussion. ...a fine book. * Monthly Labor Review *
