Will the gap between the rich and poor inevitably increase in today’s globalized world?
I’m of the opinion that the gap between the rich and poor inevitable increase in today’s globalized world.
I have two reasons to support my opinion.
First, companies in developed countries are nowadays trying to exploit cheap labor forces. Since the world is becoming more globalized, large corporations are expanding their businesses overseas. These companies, for instance, have built factories in developing countries, and as a result, many people are forced to do demanding tasks at low pay. Whereas, since the labor cost is very cheap, these companies make huge profits.
Second viewpoint is digital divide. In developed countries, since most households are connected with the Internet, they can have an access to various kinds of information and education. As a result, they are more likely to gain high-paying job opportunities. On the other hand, in some developing nations, the Internet connection environment is not developed adequately. Under the situation, citizens can’t gain knowledge about how to improve economic conditions, and they won’t be able to escape from poverty.
In conclusion, I believe that the gap between the rich and poor inevitably increase in today’s globalized world. (187 words)
