to Think About
is fast becoming eroded with the ultimate aim being profit. Business owners
have to make a profit or the business will die but when exhorbitant profits
are gained in third world and foreign nations at the expense of slave and
child labour, where sweat shops are in operation, where the workers have
to work 12-15 hour days for a pittance of a wage, where the workers are
so beholden to the company for their every need, we as customers need to
stand up and be heard.
Boycotts harm no one but the poor workers who are totally dependent on their meagre income. Trade embargos also hurt the weakest and most vulnerable in society. Perhaps this is an area where the United Nations should voice global concerns, where Human Rights Organisation can be heard, where voluntary organisations can step in and provide cottage industries as alternative forms of employment.
Corporate governance and accounting procedures leave a lot to be desired in the busines world and business in our own back yards has moved well away from the idea of an ethical, just and honest environment.
C.S.Lewis put it nicely when he stated:
"The greatest evil is not done in those sordid dens of crime that Dickens loved to paint. It is conceived and moved, seconded and carried and minuted, in clean, carpeted, warmed and well-lighted offices, by quiet men with white collars and cut fingernails, and smooth-shaven chins, who do not need to raise their voices."
Business owners who place their businesses in the Hands of God, discover that their business flourishes, the customers gain and all involved benefit because the success of the business is for the Glory of God. God loves to see us succeed and we are told:
'...God...giveth thee power to get wealth...' (Deut 8:18).
