The encouragement of free trade zones in developing countries in a bid to woo foreign investors has resulted in negative effects. A documentary released in 2003, The Hidden Face of Globalization, revealed how female factory workers in free trade zones are being physically and verbally abused so as to keep up with the production demands from the firms (Bacchus & Foerster 2005). In a bid to maximize profit, most of these multinational companies prefer to refrain from creating healthier and safer working environments for their workers. According to Fuentes and Ehrenreich 1998 (in Bacchus & Foerster 2005), 12 women died in Taiwan from the inhalation of toxic fumes at a Philco-Ford assembly plant.
