discussion question post not a paper

Read the following scenario:

Your company is managing to maintain a good profit margin on the computer parts you manufacture in a very tough economy. Recently, an opportunity has come along to move your production capacity overseas. The move will reduce manufacturing costs significantly as a result of tax incentives and lower labor costs, resulting in an anticipated 15% increase in profits for the company.

However, the costs associated with shutting down your U.S.-based operations would mean that you would not see those increased profits for a minimum of 3 years. Your U.S. factory is the largest employer in the surrounding town, and shutting it down would result in the loss of over 800 jobs. The loss of those jobs is expected to devastate the economy of the local community.

Write either an argument for or against this behavior in the discussion by 11:30 p.m. (Eastern time) on Thursday.

I would like the argument to be against this behavior

Here’s a website that has good info on it. Feel free to use whatever sources you’d like, if needed.
