Corporate power over US workers has tilted drastically toward corporations, resulting in devastation of workers rights, including the right to earn a decent living. This is the main reason for the decline in the living standards of workers and their families and a variety of destructive effects on American society, its economy, the environment and public health.
Americans are realizing the effects of corporate control of government, but outsourcing, deregulation and lack of accountability for harm to individuals and society do not compare to abuses of workers in other nations. Understanding what corporate executives do to their workers in other countries shows why we have to stand with them or suffer the same fate.
Coca-Cola shows the effects of unchecked corporate power. Seemingly a producer of a popular and apparently benign product, evidence shows it has funded death squads in Latin America targeting union organizers with intimidation, murder and rape. It abuses its economic power to bribe officials in Mexico, India and elsewhere to privatize, deplete and poison vital water supplies, practice racial discrimination and commit a variety of other corporate crimes.
