    Free trade though would fix that problem, would it not? Outside investors would want to tap that unused resource, as inhumane as it may sound, it's better for those people.

    Not always, if there is an excess supply of labour then it would not fix the problem. Unlike shutting down mines or oil wells, to reduce supply of raw materials, people still need to eat, put a roof over their head and put cloths on their back

    Excess supply of labor? Only if you ignore the fact that these people demand too. People won't be out of work because of free trade (unless their position was overvalued and benefited from the country not being open for investment), free trade opens up new job opportunities to them. In all, you get a much more efficient economy with free trade because you get a better division of labor.
