Employer's responsibilities and obligations towards employees:

I feel that a company's responsibility to its employees is extremely varied and should be evermore changing to be able to adapt to the fast pace in which the world changes. A company has to decide whether it wants to cross the line into seeing employee satisfaction on the same level as company productivity, or choose a fully ruthless approach to their competition within the market, completely degrading the importance of the employee rights. Examples would be the recent China-EU issue on textile production; due to low wages and an extremely large workforce the Chinese textile companies managed to exceed their quota and put off balance the EU market. These people aren't focused on employee rights, but on company productivity, and they will do their best to achieve a high standard no matter what the cost.

It is my point a view that a company should view its employees as human beings and not robots (as is the case of a high number of major corporations). This includes reducing the work hours, creating a healthy and stimulating working environment and avoiding the usual pressure-ridden atmospheres (the question of which one is more efficient is a whole other topic).

Parents Vs Children's rights in deciding the future:

When dealing with the issue of parents wanting to decide the future for their children, they should have a slightly larger weight or influence in the decision making process(at least until the age of 18) mainly due to the fact that most adolescents are unsure of what they want to become. Thus, the risk of choosing the wrong path in life greatly increases. I feel a somewhat significant intervention in the decision of children's futures is justified to the extent that it's done for the child's benefit, and not the parents own ambitions. The question is whether the actions being done are actually because of a parent's desire to fulfill their wishes or not, and determining that factor is extremely difficult. Nevertheless parents should to some point, the last say in deciding their children's futures.
