The three issues I will discuss is the pay differences between Asians and whites, and other minorities, how they exclude others from attending meetings by conducting them In Japanese and how they are using stereotypes to refrain from holing Americans. “Compensation is one of the most complex areas of international human resource management. Pay systems must conform to local laws and customs for employee compensation while also fitting into global NC policies” (Hailed, 2002, Para. ). It would only be fair to pay those with similar position the same pay rate.
In addition to the compensation problems how they conduct their meetings were wrong. It states In this case that “weekly meetings were conducted In Japanese, effectively excluding non-Japanese-speaking employees” (Vance, 2006, peg 170). This clearly means that their intent was to exclude them from being a part of important matters and making them feel as if they didn’t belong even though they were executives who supposed to be included in those meetings. Marianne America also used stereotypes as a reason to not staff certain individuals.
For Instance, In an email the vice president stated, “l want a person who has aggressiveness, high I. Q, 23 to 30 yr old, Asian, Like Chinese, Japanese, of course American or others Is fine”. In this one sentence they discriminated in two ways. The first is discrimination based on age and the second is discrimination against ethnic group and national origin. Basically he wanted a specific type of person. Mac’s needs to follow the employment laws of the united States because if they are allowed to operate here they should be subjected to the same polices other corporations have to follow.
Discriminating against people from different ethnic backgrounds and national origins is wrong in all cultures and it shouldn’t be tolerated. In addition, there should be penalties for violating U. S. Employment laws.
