Multinational Companies & Exploitation of
Women in Developing Countries
By P. Kumar
Distributed by Coronet Books Inc.
The primary cause of women's weak labor market position in developing countries is the weak and underdeveloped nature of their national economies, resulting in weak labor demand. It is this weak development of productive forces - whatever its causes-which results in a large (as much as tenfold or more) national wage difference between, developed and developing countries. This is much more important that the sex wage difference within the developing country, which is about half to one-third, and which is a secondary cause of low wages in multinational factories.
