It’s a little dated but this John Stossel video is useful for generating discussion about international trade, wages and exploitation.  See also the section in our International Trade chapter on child labor and in our chapter on Ethics about exploitation.  Also related are material in the labor chapter on why janitors in India and American earn different wages despite performing similar jobs.
