Evan Brown BUS 101 Terri Barr 11 April 2011 Nike This case is about Nike’s labor overseas in “sweatshops.” Some groups and individuals see these factories as inhumane, cruel places where workers are paid next to nothing. The workers in these countries see these factories as transitional jobs where they can make enough money to move onto the next stage in their life. There have been attempts to regulate these overseas activities to ensure that these factory employees are treated fairly. Nike has not been able to agree on a plan set by FLA and moved onto WRC which still seems a little shaky or one sided where companies can’t take place in setting standards. Nike feels this subject is misconstrued and believes it is so complex that they see it as a handicap and a hurdle. When UO joined hands with WRC, Knight felt as if they were stepping over their boundaries as a school and getting too involved in his business world. This is ultimately why Knight decided to withdraw his very generous philanthropic contributions.
