Promoting Labor Rights and Leveling the International Playing Field
Please join us for an armchair conversation with Carol Pier, Deputy Undersecretary for International Affairs at the Department of Labor. This discussion will focus on how the U.S. government helps ensure that workers around the world are treated fairly and able to share in the benefits of the global economy. Ms. Pier will discuss how the Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) works to improve global working conditions, raise living standards, protect workers' ability to exercise their rights, and address the workplace exploitation of children and other vulnerable populations.
Ms. Pier joined ILAB in 2009, serving as Associate Deputy Undersecretary and Acting Deputy Undersecretary. For ten years prior, Ms. Pier worked on labor rights and trade issues for Human Rights Watch, the largest U.S.-based non-governmental organization dedicated to promoting and protecting human rights. She documented and reported on workers' rights violations around the world, analyzed foreign and domestic labor laws, and engaged in advocacy on labor rights and trade matters in the United States and abroad.
