BB3651 Columbia Southern Developing Nation Southeast Asia Ethical Case Study


Columbia Southern University

Question Description

For this assignment, you will first review the following case study: A textile manufacturer is closing its North Carolina plant and moving the production of its products to a developing nation in Southeast Asia. The primary reason for the move is because the lower labor cost will allow the organization to benefit from the newlocation. Proponents of the decision laud the move as a means to save the organization by taking advantage of the free market and finding cheaper methods of producing the company's goods. Opponents of the decision state that a trust existed between the company and the employees and that a breach of trust will occur due to this decision. Additionally, opponents cite recent findings that contractors in the Southeast Asia region, where the company is moving, have been cited for utilizing child labor and failing to provide working conditions equivalent to those in the United States. Officials in the Southeast Asia region have answered the criticisms of the use of child labor by pointing out that oftentimes children are the only individuals in a family who are capable of working, and to deny them that opportunity would create even greater hardships on the already desperately poor population. Next, review the article by Peslak (2005), and reflect on what you have learned about deontological (actions focused) and teleological (consequences focused) frameworks. Peslak, A. R. (2005). An ethical exploration of privacy and radio frequency identification. Journal of Business Ethics, 59(4), 327-345.

From the perspective of the workers in North Carolina, the move taken by the business is
unethical. The company intends to start its operations in Southeast Asia because there are a free
market and cheap labor which will increase the profits by reducing expenses. The act will go
against the requirements of any employee who would like to have a highly conducive
environment. In Southeast Asia, the officials in the nation claim that utilizing child labor is
effective since a large percentage of the population is poor (Ferrell & Fraedrich, 2015). The
