Unit 5 case study lead

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 new      location.
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.
