Important Film Reports on Former Free Trade Zones in Jamiaca

The film "Life or Debt" depicts what happened when Jamaica went into debt to the WTO. Towards the end, it shows what happens in a Free Trade Zone. The Chinese were eventually brought in and were paid in US dollars and treated better than the Jamaican workers who were paid in Jamaican money. The FTZ had it's own laws and was not considered a part of Jamaica. Scary when you think of how many of these zones are being set up in the USA. I was shocked when I printed out the list...about 50 pages long!

Watch this important film (let each part load all the way before watching).
