It is almost clear to see the income inequality present between manufacturing workers and those who are from other industry. As developing countries always tend to have a large population base which is strength, this also is the reason that other countries outsource jobs to them. But labor force might be the easiest source to find in such countries. Therefore, they tend to get an unequal treat or even lower than their job expectation in order to get the opportunity. The similar opinion has been proved through a multiple of sources such as by Pavcnik (2011) who have discussed the relationship between globalization and inequality. She believed that work inequality has increased in several dimensions since the 1980s in developing countries with the trend of internationalizing and globalizing (Pavcnik, 2011). Furthermore, the researchers also revealed that the growth of low-paid manufacturing outsourcing jobs might have encouraged the growth of informal jobs and lower labor market standards (United States of America, 2016). The informal jobs generated from globalization may not comply with labor market regulations such as minimum wage or minimum working age, and may associate with worse working conditions (Goldberg and Pavcnik, 2007). Such perishing condition of factories cannot provide healthy and vigorous working environment for workers who may eventually develop serious health concern if they work for a longer period of time in such a deteriorating environment (Scott and Kimball, 2014). Although it benefited the economy and personal development, negative effects brought by international outsourcing are troubling both workers and their countries.
In conclusion, it is undeniable that outsourcing has brought enormous benefits to developing countries’ economy in general. On the contrary, the workers are also bearing problems caused by international outsourcing.
