Multinational companies hurry to China as the frontline for their investments, thereby taking advantage of the Chinese situation. The discussion is about equal human freedom based on equal human rughts. Such a freedom can never neglect the social substantive justice for its survival. Now, proclaiming categorically the human rights of Chinese (and not only Chinese) workers is an imperative which calls for a moral, democratic and economic adherence. In other words, it is a necessity that will lead to global prosperity, profit and productivity in the long run. A progress which must definitely include the laborers themselves.

Chinese Workers, International Organizations and Human Freedom
There is a non-governmental Chinese New York-based international organization named Human Rights in China (HRIC). They try to promote Chinese human rights both internationally and in China. Basically, human rights of Chinese workers are not only an international problem but also a national problem. Probably the fact that it is also a national matter doesn't help the international aspect of it. Multinational companies hurry to China as the frontline for their investments, thereby taking advantage of the Chinese situation.
Coming to the questions: A) Do Chinese workers have basic human freedom that is different from those of American workers? B) Is it right to maltreat a Chinese worker and neglect his basic human rights?
The Chinese workers do not have different basic human freedom. They have the same basic human freedom like those of American workers. Equal freedom is based on equal human rights. Labor right is part of human rights. Now, proclaiming categorically the human rights of Chinese (and not only Chinese) workers is an imperative which calls for a moral, democratic and economic adherence. In other words, it is a necessity that will lead to global prosperity, profit and productivity in the long run. This progress must definitely include the laborers themselves.
This answer is based on the fact that all human beings have equal rights regardless of their place of origin or their social status. Human right is therefore universal. As a matter of fact, the history of philosophy has proved that this modern concept of human rights has always existed through time. It can be traced as far back as during the era of the classical Greece and the ancient Rome. Nevertheless, if human freedom is not respected, human rights can never stand. In other words, all men (employers and empoyees) have equal rights as well as equal freedom. I can only be good to a fellow man if his value is very clear on my mind.

Solution Summary

This answer is based on the fact that all human beings have equal rights regardless of their place of origin or their social status. Nevertheless, if human freedom is not respected, human rights can never stand. In other words, all men (employers and empoyees) have equal rights as well as equal freedom.
Liberty is a cardinal right of every individual. It is a moral and political principle under which human beings are able to govern themselves, act according to their free will and take responsibilities for their actions. In other words, freedom and liberty could be interchanged in some occasions. "'Freedom', when applied to persons and their actions, refers to the ability of a person in a given set of circumstances to act in some particular way. 'Liberty' refers to authoritative permission to act in some particular way. The contrast is a basis for the grammatical distinction between 'can' and 'may', between the de facto and the de jure perspectives, or between (overall) ability and permission." (Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, p. 753). Liberty and freedom belong to man as endowed with intelligence and moral liberty, which consists in choosing that good only which is in conformity with the judgment of reason.

Do the working conditions of Foxconn workers matter to the employers? What main ethical footing should be handled in other to solve the problems that arose and led to the death of many workers? Are the basic human rights of those workers well considered and respected?

Bearing in mind the working conditions of Foxconn workers, we discussed how to tackle a case study: Suicides in the Foxconn Company. We tried to see the ethical consequences of what is/was going on in the company that led to the numerous suicides in the workplace. The main issue in question is how the workers are considered. Are the human rights of those workers different from that of their employers? Is there a way of putting an end to ill-treatments on the workplace? Can a company boast of its glory when its workers are underprivileged?
