The objective of this paper is to examine the conditions under which it is fair to outsource labour. Now a days companies have the choice to establish jobs in every country in the world and this brings a lot of opportunities. Companies enjoy big financial gains by posting jobs in developing countries. And as a perk for developing countries the capital injection usually creates an enormous growth in local prosperity by the structural flow of new capital. The downside is that there are people in developed countries who are already employed by the companies, who will be fired to make way for cheap labour in developing countries. Within the regular business economics there seems to be no formal position for morality. According to the broadly accepted Shareholder Theory, by Milton Friedman, companies have a specific objective and that is to maximise profits for its shareholders. To provide an exploration of the moral concerns two different theories of global justice are discussed. The first theory is the theory of Richard Miller, which is aimed at direct relations. The second theory is the theory of Iris Young which is aimed at indirect relations on an international level.
