“Unfortunately, we are living in such a world in which trade unions and labour forces are being weakened. It is not enough to say that there are inequalities in the world, our role is to unite and to influence powerful changes in labour rights!!. It is pointless to talk about social justice and fair distribution of income unless we discuss the reasons that are behind them. Our world is changing very fast, from climate change to the migrant crisis, from the threat of terrorism to internal conflicts, the globalized world faces many challenges. Due to our growing interconnection, what happens in the global South will directly or indirectly affect the global North, and vice-versa. This is part of the globalization process. And that is why we should be ready to face those problems by creating sustainable solutions, that could minimize the consequences of the problem or even prevent them from happening.” Esen also said.
