“Nike” The Sweatshop Debate Mgt 448 6-6-12 “Nike” The Sweatshop Debate “We’ve run the course – from establishing codes of conduct and pulling together an internal team to enforce it, to working external bodies to monitor factories and engaging with stakeholders” (Nikebiz, para. 2). The creation of this code of conduct came after serious allegations of using sweatshops with women and children working in hazardous conditions for less than minimum wage in overseas factories scattered across the globe to make their product. This paper uses the case study entitled, “Nike: The Sweatshop Debate,” to describe the legal, cultural, and ethical challenges that confront Nike’s global business. This paper will also determine the various roles that host governments have played as well as summarize the strategic and operational challenges that face global management for the Nike Corporation.

Because the company must produce all financial information to the SEC many businesses find it to be very stressful and time consuming which takes time and money away from a company that is thriving like Kudler Fine Foods.

Since there are several business functions requiring specific skills and separate management personnel for each area, Cypress Private Security is a vertical organization. The company also covers a decent size geographic location requiring more employees in management level positions because the Chief Executive Officer is not able to be in all places when needed (Bateman, T. S., & Snell, S. A. 2010). While Cypress Private Security is a simple company with a basic business plan, it requires a more complex organizational structure to ensure the jobs run smoothly as intended. The clientele is unlimited and this becomes a factor that requires there to be more support to present and future customers in the security industry.
Accident Cost Iceberg Accidents are common at workplace, and thus the cost of accidents should be a major concern to the employers of any organization. In fact, many people do not always realize that the accidents are costly, both from the aspects of human tragedy as well as direct and indirect costs. The profits of an organization can actually be affected and reduced radically due to a series of costly accidents. This is because accidents have direct and indirect costs. Direct costs include workers compensation insurance premium for medical bills, liability insurance cost, and property related insurance costs; whereas indirect costs include various disruptions to normal work, transportation for first aid, wages paid to injured worker for time not worked, loss of crew efficiency, and OSHA and civil fines.
ARTICLE (700 words) Things you should know while hiring a Truck Repair Agency Well, truck repair is something that almost every truck owner is afraid of. Since it is a big vehicle the repairs are also big and they cannot be avoidable for the same reason. The huge loads that are transported by a truck everyday do have its effect on the machine and after daily use, it actually demands proper servicing as well as repair. In that case, our best initiative is to take proper care of the truck and keep it away from wear and tear through good maintenance. Avoiding a proper maintenance of a truck can lead to worse damage cases and that would amount to a huge expense for repairing it in a truck and trailer repair shop in Calgary.

Effect of Local Steel Slag as a Coarse Aggregate on Properties of Fly Ash Based-Geopolymer Concrete O. M. Omar, A. M. Heniegal, G. D. Abd Elhameed, H. A. Mohamadien Abstract—Local steel slag is produced as a by-product during the oxidation of steel pellets in an electric arc furnace. Using local steel slag waste as a hundred substitutes of crushed stone in construction materials would resolve the environmental problems caused by the large-scale depletion of the natural sources of dolomite. This paper reports the experimental study to investigate the influence of a hundred replacement of dolomite as a coarse aggregate with local steel slag, on the fresh and hardened geopolymer concrete properties. The investigation includes traditional testing
