The United States of America has always been the ideal of democracy for many countries all over the world which provides a number of opportunities. It is vital to understand that being the ideal democracy for many countries and for many people in the world; it is responsible for setting standards in numerous spheres of democracy. Such one sphere is the employment sector. It is vital to note that the protection of employees rights cuts across citizens, and non-citizens. According to the information provided by the United States Homeland Security Department (ND), the United States welcomes thousands of foreign workers annually. In a contradictory element, America provides the foreigner with extremely conducive working conditions.
Thesis statement: It is critical to note that whereas numerous foreign citizens provide cheap and readily available labor to American companies, the rights of these employees must be upheld by the American government.
America has been known to champion for democracy, both to people in America and other countries. Numerous countries, especially in Africa, do not have labor unions and employees are oppressed both in terms of low wages and unbearable working conditions. It is vital for the American government to prohibit companies from outsourcing workers from countries that do not have labor unions and prudent labor laws. This is vital since it would ensure that companies in America do not take advantage of cheap labor from foreign workers in the third world countries. It is critical to note that such third world countries do not care for the rights of their employees. The absence of strict labor laws renders workers from these countries vulnerable to oppression and humiliation. Therefore, it is vital for the American government to protect such employees through prohibiting companies from taking advantage of them. Through such measures, the US government would be upholding its fight for democracy across the world.
Secondly, the American government must prohibit companies from outsourcing workers from countries which do not allow labor unions and have no explicit labor laws in order to push them for such legislation. It is evident that America is a land of opportunities, and when the government prohibits workers from such countries from going to America, it works as a wake-up call to their home countries. There is no country, which would wish its people to be prohibited from working in America due to their draconian labor laws. Therefore, by prohibiting workers from these countries, the American government would be advancing its course for ensuring democracy and human rights are keenly observed. In addition, by prohibiting such workers from going to America, this would not portray the country as participating in violation of human and worker's rights. It is evident that workers have continuously been going to the United States for such of excellent working conditions and favorable career opportunities.
While prohibiting workers may seem plausible, it is critical to note that there are various solutions to the problem of foreign workers with no unions. It is critical to note that the American government cannot allow workers to continue with their miserable working conditions. It would be vital for the American government to put forward legislation that would allow foreign workers to have their unions in America. Therefore, all the foreign workers should become members of foreign workers labor unions, which would protect their rights in the future. The government might be obliged to check whether the employee has fulfilled this requirement.
There are plenty of jobs that are now outsourced, even in middle classes. Inability to find work means inability to purchase homes, spend money, and profit companies. When people do not buy, corporations that produce things do not make money, which can thus "trickle down" to fewer jobs available and a greater desire to outsource to make things cheaper so that they will be more attractive to consumers.
Those supporting outsourcing say that lowering expenses of corporations will create jobs. Many government agencies outsource some of their work, saving them millions of dollars, a direct effect on the US economy and on federal spending. A common theory contends that being able to pay people low wages result in companies producing cheap products, hence allowing consumers to save. This results in enormous consumer spending and companies will be able to hire numerous workers in the US since they are paying low wages to their workers from foreign countries.
Furthermore, many argue that giving jobs to workers in less developed countries improve those countries economically and increases trade for US products. It also increases a country's ability to pay back debts to the US and promotes excellent political relationships. Companies benefit economically through selling their products to other countries. This means they can hire numerous people in the US, lower their prices on products for US consumers.
Not all people in other countries economically benefit from outsourced jobs, and some companies are not dedicated to providing humane working conditions. Outsourced workers may comprise minors working in inhumane working conditions. Abuse of foreign employees might not benefit from US trade or political relationships with other countries.
