Theme in “Harrison Bergeron” Being unique is a necessary part of life. People are told starting as children that they need to be themselves. They are told to do what they love and love what they do. What if the world didn’t allow this? Kurt Vonnegut ponders the idea of a life in which the government enforces complete equality.
The human capital is what makes the company work, and without their loyalty and service, the company would quickly collapse.

An independent firm would be objective enough to evaluate ethical problems faced by the company in an unbiased way, and therefore BBA would then be able to address ethical problems with the most objective decisions to ensure its business integrity (Freeman & Stewart, 2006).

The minimum wage should be improved drastically. After all it is those workers that are doing the tough manual labor that makes a company flourish. Companies are nothing without their employees and they should treat them with more respect.
The doctrine reflects the belief that people should be free to enter into employment contracts for a specific amount of time, but no obligations attached to either employer or employee if a person was hired without such contract. This in turn has forced individuals to look towards unions as acting certified representatives that protect employees to equalize bargaining power. As the new COO it is important to understand and interpret the law in a “just” manner that should be conducted through professional and ethical behavior. With respect to what’s in the best interest of the company it is essential to take the utilitarian approach when addressing said issues at hand. This approach focuses more on the consequences of actions or policies that have an effect on persons directly or indirectly affected by said actions.
Consequently, libertarians should take care of other’s freedom, and libertarianism is contrary to utilitarianism in some ways.

Since the universal ethical norm concerns about the individual and the society as well, it will care for the leader and the homeless.

Nike can easily afford to pay workers a fair amount. One can see that this is the antithesis of Nike's philosophy: doing what's fair. Workers in Nike sweatshops are denied human rights, pressured into working long and hard hours, and worst of all can't provide for themselves or their families. It's ironic how an American company, which enjoys the rights given to it by the American government, takes away human rights in other countries. Nike should open its factories to inspection by the local labor rights offices.
Countries and their laws vary but part of being an aware consumer is acknowledging them. Another part consumers need to know is what classes, ethnicities, and genders are employed in sweatshops. The third piece of information, and the reason behind the sweatshop debate, is being aware of their working conditions. To bring an end to sweatshops, the world must partake in being conscious consumers. America included, and everyone in it, is guilty of participating in the continuation and success of sweatshops and the corporations and regimes that run them.
Nike: The Sweatshop Debate SYNOPSIS Nike is a worldwide global corporation that has its shoes manufactured on a contract basis in places like Asia, China, and Vietnam. Although it does not actually own any of the manufacturing locations, it has long been accused of having its products manufactured in facilities that exploit workers. Although Nike admits some wrongdoing in the manufacturing facilities of its contractors, it claims to have started a commitment to improve working conditions in those facilities. Nike has suffered attacks from a number of agencies and organizations throughout the world that claim that the workers who manufacture Nike shoes are denied the basic essentials of living—a fair wage and decent benefits. All that occurs while several sport megastars are reaping in multimillion dollar contracts to promote Nike shoes.
Human Resources involves making a diverse work environment. A place where all employees are valued and a work environment that does not tolerate employment discrimination in any form. While all employers needs to have policies to prevent discrimination from taking place. Federal labor and employment laws, have been passed to be used as a guide for making these employer policies. No employer wants to be sitting on the other side of a lawsuit just because they did not have in place or did not follow laws that were made to offer employees some protections.
Given the fact that all of humanity must coexist on the same planet, there has to be a modicum of consideration with regard to business values. If not, then there would be no sense of tolerance or respect for individual life. People have to abide by an ethical code to ensure proper behavior among the world’s population. Yet, again, who is to determine what this corporate ethical code will represent, and who is to say that all commerce must follow it? Clearly, defining ethics is to define man’s proper values and interests, a concept that Beauchamp et al contends must exist within the framework of all business
