Rajesh Goutham Posted 7 months ago Why is it OK for corporations to outsource work to countries that violate the corporation's home country labor laws? Hi, Every business will source its materials at the cheapest rates and sell at the highest rates. We succumb to buying brands because we let our senses be affected by their advertising. Only by buying non-branded good quality goods can we ensure that someone doesn't fleece you. Regarding kids working in sweat shops, now that's an issue of the local government. Our kids are our future. By making them work instead of educating them, our future needn't be predicted. Majority of the imbalances are due to currency difference. The emerging economies need the dollars to buy weapons and machinery, so they let their currency get devalued.
