It is undeniable that in recent years, with the development of the global economy and capitalism, an increasing demand for cheap products, made in sweatshops, has occurred. A sweatshop, a factory where labourers experience long hours, unsafe conditions and very low wages, is often being neglected by national governments from developed countries. Even though the labourers are working in hazardous conditions, are sometimes underaged and have their human rights being violated, sweatshops still exist. Nonetheless, the best solution is uncertain. International legislations could prevent a direct approach, the economy from the developing countries with sweatshops could collapse or the international relationship between the nations could be at stake. Furthermore, the behaviour of the consumer is decisive while exterminating the sweatshops. But there is no doubt that the key in dealing with this problem is to mind the four disciplines that PPLE contains. The United Nations holds 193 sovereign states and all have to follow the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This legislation contains 30 articles to which all human beings are evenly and inevitable entitled. As a global leader and as the United Nations primarily, the disobedience of these written laws by any nation must be intensified and terminated. However some approaches, like boycotting the relevant country, could be an unlawful and unsatisfactory solution concerning free trade agreements. Therefore a distinctive knowledge of the legislation, in general, is required beforehand in order to solve this issue. Whilst trying to fully exterminate the bad conditions and the violation of human rights in sweatshops, it is as well a matter of politics. Generally, the national governments create the legal foundation of the labour laws in sweatshops. They decide, among other things, the minimum wage, working hours and the working conditions. Nevertheless, it is often the sweatshop who does not follow this legislation. When certain factories do not abide by those ‘laws’ an intervention in countries who house sweatshop could be drastic for the relationship between both nations. Therefore a global leader should take into account that you cannot always interfere directly with, for an example by sending an investigation team to inspect factories, home affairs. It is important to give every political consequence a consideration, before exterminating the sweatshops.A lot of consumers are not paying any attention at all to the fact that the origin of the purchased products is from sweatshops. Even though most people are aware of the fact that a significant amount of human rights are being violated by some factories and companies, they often do not know which or simply do not think about it when shopping. Contradictory most westernized people do not advocate a society where essential human rights are being violated. This contrast could be clarified since most people are taking these important values for granted and do not realize that not every country shares their ideals or the fact that not everyone can afford clothing without being made by low-cost labourers. And even more plausible; a lot of people, for an example, do not experience improving the circumstances in sweatshops as their duty or responsibility.  Therefore it is necessary for a global leader when trying to solve this problem and possibly reducing the purchasing of sweatshop manufactured products, to try to appeal to the sensibility of the customers. In order to change the buying behaviour of the consumer, so that one will stop buying unethically products from sweatshops, it is crucial to understand this behaviour and motives of the consumer, and that is why knowledge of psychology is significant to solve this issue. Most of the assumptions that have been made so far are analyzed only from the point of view of the developed nations, therefore it is also important to be aware of the view of the developing nations, which is often surprisingly contrasting.     For an example, the countries who house sweatshops do not reduce the wages of the labourers without a reason. It is a fact that lower wages often means more profit, for that reason the countries with lower minimum wages attract foreign investors what will stimulate the economy and will help the poor to escape poverty. To demonstrate, China had enormous ‘benefits’ of the sweatshops and experienced an enormous decrease in the poverty headcount ratio in the population. Higher wages, on the other hand, will limit this necessary economic growth in order to prosper as a country and maybe even one day get rid of the sweatshops; hence in order to solve such an important problem like sweatshops a global leader must understand the motives of the country and moreover, the economy of the concerned country.Another cause of the high amount of sweatshops in developing countries and the reason that they still exist is simply that many labourers want to work in sweatshops. In countries like Bangladesh, a life of crime is the most common alternative to working in sweatshops and besides, a job is better than no job. Also, due to the fact that working in sweatshops pays a lot more than any other possible employment in developing countries, sweatshops sometimes helps people to develop economically. Again, the knowledge of the economical intentions is significant when dealing with this issue. It is undeniable that this current situation needs change and therefore global leaders need to take into account that there are a lot of problematic consequences when trying to improve the working conditions and ensure that products are developed utterly safe, ethical, and sustainable. As mentioned before interaction could have economical impacts as well as political, furthermore psychological explanations and legislations should be examined in advance. With this in mind it is undoubtedly that the problem of sweatshops will be settled in the near future.
