Nike and Sweat shops

            Is Nike Employees In Indonesia being treated fairly?.
             Nike Corporations" CEO Phil Knight has gained a lot of media attention lately because of its work ethics in Indonesia. The Nike employees in Indonesia are faced with several negative factors when viewed ethically. These employees live in a very poor country where work is at a minimum. Nike pays the workers in Indonesia a very low wage and subjects them to harsh working conditions. .
             There are several third world companies that produce expensive products. Products such as Nike move some of their products to countries like Indonesia and Mexico for cheap labor. The cheap labor is one factor but to treat humans harshly is a total different matter. Their wages are approximately $56 per month. The workers wages are so low they are forced to send their children to live with relatives in distant villages. .
             The working conditions are worse than the wages. The employees here are forced to work for hours at a time without breaks or lunches on some occasions. The employees suffer from physical and psychological pressure. Managers are constantly shouting and humiliating the employees. Many of the employees suffer from respiratory illnesses from inhaling toxic chemicals. .
             I do not feel that any of these actions can be truly justified. I feel that the employees will accept the wages because there is not a lot to choose from in their country. However, I feel that every person deserves to be treated fair. There are other companies in Indonesia that have made some ethical improvements. These companies made improvements with their working conditions and wages of the employees. Ethical egoism is the concept that fits the CEO of Nike because he is making his ethical decisions based on his own self-interest and what will benefit him. If I were to deal with this situation I would consider my Christian views and make sure that the employees are comfortable and treated fair.
