Reburning magnesia enterprises should improve their corporate social responsibility system by improving the added value and quality of products, rather than by relying solely on cheap labor to win at low cost.
Many Chinese enterprises do not agree with the term "sweatshop", and sometimes even call it a conspiracy of trade barriers. Admittedly, China's commodities do encounter unfair treatment, but it is absolutely exaggerated to call them all barriers without thinking. "Sweat factory" is not unique to China. It is not only China's "sweat factory" that is resisted by the international community.
The reasons for the emergence of sweatshops are complex.
Cheap labor has always been China's advantage, but labor-intensive industries are not equal to the lowest end of the industrial value chain. In fact, if you look at the few Chinese enterprises called sweatshops, the pillar of their survival is the orders of multinational companies. Multinational corporations must use low-price products to ensure their profits. Under the pressure of low-price purchasing by multinational corporations, "forcing employees to work overtime" and "reducing the welfare of employees" have become an important means for some business owners to ensure their own profits.
The toy industry is an example. Although the International Toy Manufacturing Association's Social Responsibility Business Code introduced next year is purely voluntary, the involvement of international giants makes voluntary compulsory. Manufacturing enterprises can't get orders if they don't comply with the rules, but abiding by the rules means that the original meager profits become more insignificant, and some enterprises have exclaimed "the disaster of extinction". In the media reports, we can see that the source of profits of toy manufacturers is processing fees, and the treatment of workers and profits of enterprises have become a dilemma. In this case, increasing the treatment of workers is no longer a simple moral problem, but an industrial problem.
Like the toy industry, China's manufacturing enterprises are mostly "migrant workers" of multinational corporations and are at the low end of the industrial value chain with low added value. Being regarded as a "sweatshop" and being required to assume social responsibility, this reminds China's labor-intensive enterprises that the profit-making mode of earning processing fees has become unsustainable.
Social responsibility is already a global standard, and Chinese enterprises should make up for it. For example, we often say that the social moral responsibility standard, many Chinese enterprises always think that this is imposed on China by the Western world. In fact, what is abbreviated as SA8000 is only a folk certification, which is widely recognized internationally and makes this folk rule a worldwide standard.
