Outsourced 1 Running head: OUTSOURCED Getting Outsourced Bobby Harris Indiana Wesleyan University Plagiarism is considered cheating and applies to all forms of intellectual property.

Nonetheless, we are still threatened with having our jobs sent to Mexico, because, the company can increase their profit. We are told to increase the production of the boxes we make. If we do this we make more boxes, while potentially making more of them bad. When you increase the number of the boxes you make the machines run more erratic. Meaning they have the tendency to miss print or jam up. This also puts more strain on the machines. They break down more and then we have more down time where we cannot make any boxes. Upper management would like us to decrease the amount of scrap we produce. While
