These kids are supposed to be in school and they end up working in the shops instead.” The email shook him up. Mr. Carpenter has been an upright citizen of his community and has high standards when it came to questionable business practices. There is even a corporate code of ethics that specifically addresses the issue of exploitation of workers. The frame making industry has been around for many years in the Philippines. The families employ their children because they are an extra source of labor. The families do not think they are exploiting their sons and daughters because it teaches them about hard work, perseverance, discipline, and respect. By keeping it all in the family, they keep their income to themselves. “It’s better to see my sons working in the shop than see them running around the streets and getting into trouble with the law,” said a father. CEO Carpenter would like to make another trip to the Philippines to find out for himself about such allegations. At this point, he is withholding making a decision about the possibility of outsourcing in Camarines, Philippines. CASE ANALYSIS: 1. Synopsis. 2. What is the ethical issue and rationale? 3.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
