Question description

5 pages , MLA fromat

First: carefully read the case study.

Second: for your paper, you’ll need to pick one author from the syllabus, and argue for how that author would answer the question: is it morally right for US companies to employ cheap child labor from poor or developing countries? To do this, you’ll need to summarize that author’s position in depth, and then apply that position to this case of foreign child labor.

Third: you need to say whether YOU agree or disagree with the author you chose. And you shouldn’t just say “I agree” or “I disagree;” you need to give your own thorough argument for why you agree or disagree with the author’s answer. Let me be clear: you DO NOT need to tell me whether you agree or disagree with foreign child labor. Instead, you need to tell me whether you agree or disagree with what the author would say about foreign child labor. So, you should be agreeing or disagreeing with the author, not taking your own stance on foreign child labor.

Length: Your paper should be a minimum of five pages of content (not including headers) and a maximum of six pages of content, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins.

Punctuation and Grammar counts for 1/3 of a letter grade.For each punctuation and/or grammatical mistake, I will put a small checkmark in the left-hand margin.If there are three or more checkmarks on a single page, then you will get 1/3 of a letter grade off for grammar.I’ll mark this explicitly on your paper by giving you the grade you earned, then saying “1/3 off for grammar,” and then showing you your newly calculated grade. You will get a checkmark for the following mistakes, among others: misuse of commas, semicolons, colons; subject/verb disagreement; possessive mistakes; misuse of ‘there’, ‘their’, and ‘they’re’; misuse of ‘your’ and ‘you’re’; misuse of ‘its’ and ‘it’s’; spelling mistakes.

Appropriate citation is required: If you look at a website for ideas, list the url at the end of your paper under “works referenced.”If you paraphrase someone else’s ideas in your own words, put the url or the author’s name and article title at the end of the paragraph you’ve paraphrased.If you cite something directly, be sure to put it in quotation marks, and put the author’s name and article title or the url at the end of the sentence.Remember that your papers will be checked for originality at

Business Ethics Case Study
After carefully studying the case study I believe the author that can be best used to
analyze the situation is Friedman. According to Friedman, the priority of a business is to make
the investors and the shareholders rich no matter the activities the companies engage in. He
says that as much as a company participates in advocating for a cleaner environment and other
social responsibilities at the end of the day the priority shall be profit making. This author, of
course, would be against this exploitation if at the end of the day the company shall still be
making profits because his main objective is to make profits. However, I think the author would
not make a stand against the exploitation of young girls and other employees if it means the
profits of the business will dwindle. This author shall be against the utilizing of cheap labor
and child labor from poor and developing countries since because he believes that a business
must have social responsibilities. Social responsibilities of businesses cover many areas like
fighting for human rights, fighting against pollution, employing people, building schools and
hospitals and finally helping the community around it grow (Seidman and Gay). So for a person
who believes in a company having social responsibilities to support the exploitation of children
and the poor this may seem ironical.
Since the aim Friedman is to ensure that a company makes profits, he may not support
this issue since there is a lot of ethical issues that surround the issue of child labor and this will

mean the arrest of people involved and it may also lead to the closure of the company. When
a company is closed then that means his objective shall have not been achieved. On the other
side, I feel that Friedman may support the use of cheap labor because just as it sated in the case
