An introduction to basic concepts about globalization and its impact on workers in the U.S. and internationally, focusing on the impacts of recent trends in economic and political globalization on workers in the U.S. and abroad. Students will gain a working understanding of major international institutions' effects on the working people and labor markets from a labor perspective. The course also provides an examination of ways in which workers, their unions, social movements, and solidarity activists are resisting the degredation of local economies and working for change in the global economy.
