is a trade in which fair prices are paid to producers in developing countries
Based on our web research the Disney company is not involved in any free trade agreement with any country. yet the issue is that the Disney Corporation did not make use or involved in the practice of fair trade. It was reported that in countries like Bangladesh, China, and Haiti where Disney manufactures its products, there were a number of sweatshops. People are exploited within these sweatshops. To increase its own gains this company is liable of exploiting people throughout the world. Pointedly, Disney has its own agenda, and it's not about their workers, human rights. It's about the money. In addition, Offshoring is nothing new to The Walt Disney Company or its subsidiaries.

Their being not committed to incorporating fair trade into their business reflects their greed. It turned out that they were just looking upon themselves and not for others. By using their prowess and cleverness they were able to manipulate their workers and run their business for their own benefits. They tend to turn things upside down and made their workers from developing countries think that their company was the one giving them favor by providing jobs to them though these jobs do not pay them enough and most times reinforce harsh restrictions and practices upon them. Also,unfair working conditions within these countries are not unusual because as long as the company’s profits are continuing to flow, they not need to bother and would just ignore these poor conditions and the suffering of their victims.
concern for oneself
Disney media products and services reflect and contain American Culture and this undoubtedly explains their love for it. And since this company’s products and services are very popular and influential for many , this might cause American culture to be applied or imposed upon to the consumers especially to their viewers from around the world.
Assistance for others
Disney supports charities and both local and international organizations around the world. In fact in 2008, Disney contributed more than $41 million in cash donations to organizations, communities and causes around the world. Disney provides financial and administrative support to The Walt Disney Company Foundation, which oversees special philanthropic initiatives separate from Disney's own businesses. In 2008, the foundation awarded college/university academic scholarships for children of 50 Disney employees and provided matching gifts for qualified higher-education organizations supported by Disney cast members and employees. The Foundation also made several contributions to local and national organizations supporting the arts and the well-being of children. Thus they were not only reaching out for those in need of help but also helping others to succeed and reach their goals.
USA- many job opportunities, effective government, healthy economic state, can be ranked above the standard of living, wide variety of choices for people, effective social programs, many things to do and see for people, very low level of corruption, less wealth disparities among people, fair treatment of people, low possible level of political terrorism, low crime rates, human rights are respected.
Bangladesh- little or less job opportunities, complicated environment, unhealthy economic state, ineffective governance, people are not given much choices to choose from, high unemployment rate, high crime rates, social programs spending is not enough, high level of corruption, strict labour and environmental standards, high possible level of political terrorism, wide gap between the rich and the poor, human rights are ignored.
The International Organizations Disney is a part of are the The Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund (DWCF) and Responsible Sourcing Network.
The Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund Founded in 1995, is a key pillar in Disney’s efforts to protect the planet for future generations and help kids develop lifelong conservation values.
Responsible Sourcing Network is an organization working to raise awareness of the serious issue of child labor and slavery in in Uzbekistan
A currency fluctuation is a change in an exchange rate. If the British pound is worth $2 on Monday, and $1.80 on Tuesday, a (somewhat dramatic) currency fluctuation has occurred. Currency fluctuations happen constantly and occur for all floating currencies. If Disney imported most of its goods from a country that had a lower exchange rate then they could get more for less, but if they are exporting goods to other country with a higher exchange rate then they would be losing more money. So depending on how the market stays, Disney could be making more or losing it all. If they were making more money than the corporation would take good strides to becoming a better organisation, but if they were losing money, then drastic measures would follow. One example could be cut backs on salaries.
Since 2009, Disney has invested $23.5 million in carbon offset projects globally, most of which involve forest conservation, reforestation and forest management. This includes a $7 million investment for forest conservation in Peru and the Democratic Republic of the Congo and $8.9 million in the United States for reforestation and forest management projects. In addition, the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund has directed more than $18 million to support programs that engage communities in protecting natural ecosystems.
Guests can support the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund through contribution opportunities at merchandise and other select locations. Currently these include Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Fort Wilderness, Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, Disney’s Port Orleans Resort, The Seas with Nemo and Friends (Epcot), Disney Vacation Club Resorts including Aulani Resort and Spa, Old Key West, Hilton Head and Vero Beach, aboard the Disney Cruise Lines and on Castaway Cay. 100% of guest contributions go directly to the projects supported. Since 1995 the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund has contributed more than $17 million projects to more than 800 projects in 111 countries.
By the end of 2012, Water Conservation Plans will be adopted by business units to identify areas for water conservation improvement. In order to construct the World of Color show at Disney California Adventure, all 16 million gallons of water in Paradise Bay had to be drained. Rather than use traditional methods, which would have lost the water to the ocean, Disneyland Resort sent the water to Orange County Water District’s Groundwater Replenishment System. This state of the art system treats water far beyond drinking water standards and then pumps it into large infiltration basins where, over time, the water percolates into Orange County’s groundwater basin.
Factory workers in southern China who make Disney’s most popular toys are docked pay if they take too much time going to the bathroom (only five minutes is allotted for bathroom breaks) and are working 18 hour days for a measly 16 pennies an hour, as well as only receiving one day off per month.
In China, young women and men are forced to work 10 to 13 hours a day producing Disney's children's books six and seven days a week, working a grueling 60 to 90 hours a week. The workers are paid just 33 to 41 cents an hour, trapping them in misery. It is common for the workers to be cheated of their overtime pay. In some factories, women are denied their legal maternity rights.

Disney's best-selling Cars toys are being made in a factory in China that uses child labor and forces staff to do three times the amount of overtime allowed by law, according to an investigation. It is claimed some of the 6,000 employees have to work an extra 120 hours every month to meet demand from western shops for the latest toys.
