A recent report into working conditions in different countries suggested that Ravi՚s suppliers paid very low wages to their employees. The report also stated that they employed child labour working long hours. Do you think that Ravi should continue to buy from these firms? Justify your answer.

Explanation

No, Ravi should not continue to buy from these firms as on moral grounds these firms are doing wrong. Child labor is completely ban all over the world and making small children work for earning money is wrong. Providing workers with lower wages is again wrong morally. Working with such firms are ethically unacceptable and knowing these facts and working with them can also be considered legally wrong. Business means making profit but it does include some ethics and morals which must not be broken.
