Final assignment reflections

My topic was the top drinks in Canada and America. My goal with this topic was to find out this information because I was really curious and I’ve always wondered what was the answer. I used this website called Statista it was a very good website and had lots of information for my graphs. I created my infographic poster of canva.  Canva was a very good website to create poster and slideshows its like PowerPoint. They are both easy to use and what I like about canva is they have templates you can get inspiration from. The process using this sites were very fun and interesting to do. Statista was a easy website to use but I had to scroll to find the best information. Canva was by far the best website I used because I could import picture easy and quickly. These websites helped me understand that technology can help the world. I’ve seen videos on this AI that can just hear someone voice and just made audio messages out of it. It was very scary but using these websites helped me realize that technology can be used for good and the future could be good.

Problems in nike factories

Nike factories in Vietnam

During my research I found two links to an interesting article about the poor work conditions in Vietnam.  On international women’s  day 56 women showed up with the wrong footwear. They got punished had to work in the hot sun and several of them fainted. Also a dozen of them collapsed while working. A man named Thuyen Nguyen investigated the factory and found out the workers had been abused sexually and verbally. Which is not okay in a work environment. Many of them were hungry and had poor living conditions with low pay. Also there is a nike boot camp  were they also had low pay and bad living conditions. They were mostly young women about 90% of them were. There ages were between 15-28 which is very sad. They have kids my age working and starving. They were barely living and lower wages than I’ve ever seen. The wages was way below minimum wage and they made millions maybe even billions from this. If they are making that much they should be able to at least pay there worker’s minimum wage. They could barely afford food. Nike responded by hiring a former United Nations worker and he had lots of work to do. He hired to oversee the working conditions . In conclusion nike labor problems is still a big problem and these articles just brought light to the problem.
