A textile manufacturer is closing and moving the production of products overseas. the primary reason for the move is to lower labor costs that the organization can enjoy in the new location.
proponents of the decision laud the move because it will save the organization by taking advantage of free market and cheaper methods of producing goods
opponents stat that a breach of trust existed b/w the company and employees and that breach will occur due to the decision. also, opponents cite recent findings that contractors overseas have been cited for using child labor and failing to provide good working conditions.
officials in southeast Asia (where they are moving) have answered the criticism of the use of child labor by point out that oftentimes children are only individuals of family who can work and to deny them that right would create hardship.
