Question

The Guardian newspaper recently reported findings from China Labour

Watch that Foxconn has drafted in hundreds of school children as 'interns' to produce Amazon's Alexa device, including working overtime and overnight shifts. Under what circumstance, if any, is Amazon ethically responsible for this practice? Begin by outlining the main arguments for and against companies being ethically responsible for the labour practices of suppliers in other countries. Then critically analyse Amazon's responsibility for how school children have been employed at Foxconn in this case considering these perspectives. Conclude by analysing whether Amazon or other stakeholders (e.g. Foxconn or the local government) are most responsible for this issue.
