Forighn Manufactoring

Topic

Foreign Manufacturing

The reason why I chose foreign manufacturing started when I was getting my dress ready for the morning. While I was picking which combination to wear, I thought about where my clothes came from. Then I remembered a story from CBS This Morning about foreign manufacturers like Gap and Nike using child labor. That is when I decided to write about this topic. The reason why I thought that this topic would be a good ideas is because there would be several resources available over that topic and there are several people against the problems with foreign manufacturing.

Thesis Statement

Instead of being blamed by customers and the government, American companies could prevent future predicaments from happening by starting an audit over foreign manufacturers or by starting to reshore manufacturing plants to North America in order in a force higher laws and protect workers from poor conditions.
