Environmental/Working Conditions

This unit focuses on working conditions and we found it to be important to include the harm on the environment that results from these labor practices as well.  Many of the lesson plans refer back to the National Labor Committee’s website or specific articles that they have released, a simple Google search will produce the necessary information.
