in Austria and world-wide
Human rights continue to be disregarded in business worldwide - with immense consequences on all continents and the corresponding flight movements. In Austria in recent years, the generation of interns, i.e. young people with the best academic training, has had to experience exploitation. The effects are very far-reaching in sectors such as PR agencies and journalism, because wage dumping is increasingly causing both younger and older workers to fall out of the system. In Europe, too, we are therefore once again being called upon by society as a whole to demand our rights as workers together.
The violation of basic labour standards and human rights in developing and emerging countries by transnational corporations has become an important topic in the human rights debate in recent years. The fundamental problem lies in the fact that many industrialized countries in which transnational corporations are based, while generally recognizing their legal responsibility for the observance of human rights, repeatedly point out the impossibility of enforcing human rights: Whether it is to enforce the activities of "their" corporations outside their own national territory or to monitor the entire supply chain.
