There loom or sewing blankets for 32

There is
only one constant and permanent thing in life – that is change. To survive for
any change that took place is to be adaptable. It can be do or die. There is no
way out but to adapt but in a humanitarian way. In the case of 50-year-old
employee who’s been running a loom or sewing blankets for 32 years, it would
difficult for her to easily adapt to change but I think with due responsibility
and accountability should be given to her. It can be through government program
and intervention where she can still do her livelihood in the advent of
technology with supervision.

According
to the Center of American Progressing News, Offshoring – the practice of moving
production to foreign locales while continuing to sell goods to the U.S.
market, is a pervasive feature of the U.S. economy today. Market pressures
drive businesses to seek reduced production costs, often in places where
standards of living and protections for workers and the environment are more
lax than in the United States. Moreover, an ineffective tax structure further
encourages the relocation of assets and production to foreign countries with
lower costs. Policies such as a tax credit that reduces the costs a company
incurs when it re-shores jobs back to the United States would help slow this
trend. Offshoring and import competition are taking a toll on wages in the
United States. Recent research from Michael Elsby of the University of
Edinburgh, Bart Hobijn of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, and
Aysegul Sahin of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York shows that the more a
U.S. industry is exposed to offshoring pressures, the more downward pressure is
put on the wage share within it.

Outsourcing
or offshoring for instance in a BPO companies “call centers”  lies the ethical issue of hiring other people
to replace the locals skills. The things is maybe there would come a time that
no skilled person to do a job in his own place because those trained working
were outsource from other country. Take an example of an Indian and Chinese
company, studies show that Indian IT companies have been consistently out competing
their US counterparts, even in US markets. Thus, it is time for CEOs to start
thinking about whether they are fine with their own jobs being outsourced as
well.

There
should have been balance. If the local company outsource some people and train
them to become a skillful IT expert then there should be somebody from its own
locality too that is equally skillful and trainable to do the same job just in
case that foreigner will no longer be connected in the company then the
operation of business will still goes on.

The
ethical dilemma in offshore outsourcing therefore arises from a single, one important
question – Should you outsource? Ever since outsourcing caught on in Western
countries, there has been some opposition to it. A loss of jobs in the host
country has been touted as the main negative effect of outsourcing. Companies
hire specialized companies, not necessarily outside of their place, to
outsource many tasks that could be better handled by a vendor. The biggest
benefit of outsourcing is that not only does it save costs for a company, but
also gives access to resources and skill-sets that wouldn’t have been possible
locally.
