Ethical Manufacturing and Technology Trends


The world of today is rapidly evolving and offers modern technology that has been used in many areas of daily life, which facilitates human work. It is particularly important to stress the significance of the latest trends in relation to child and forced work and slavery. The manufacturing that is ethical and aimed to eliminate discrimination against people at work appears to be an important element in establishing ethical standards across all societies (Grant 86).).

Tech Trends

One of the most exciting technology trends, we can take note of Sewbo the first fully automated sewing machine that produces T-shirts and other similar clothes. The sewing process involves this sequence of events: Sewbo cuts the fabric before it is treated by an adhesive plastic ( Sewbo). Then, the manipulator grabs each piece of fabric with the help of a vacuum grip, and then places it inside the machine and sews them back and forth. When the process is finished the machine removes the completed product and then places it in the water. The process is said to be more efficient than ones performed by employees and doesn’t need workers. In this way, Sewbo robots are likely to take over forced labor and child labor by offering an increased number of opportunities for employers using the technology mentioned above.

Another important trend is related to agriculture, a portion of which involves forced work. To be more specific According to a recent review of technology, “the world may need another agricultural revolution to sustain itself” (Will). The modern farmer is faced facing one of most pressing world issues that is how to feed the ever-growing world population with regard to changing climate conditions and decreasing arable land.

At this point, drones could be the salvation for farmers since they are highly-tech devices capable of doing things the farmer is unable to do by scanning every area of the field, assessing the soil’s condition, monitor the health of the crop, apply fertilizers, record all required information and analyze it to make further decisions and the timely implementation. Furthermore, drones permit to create a cartographic foundation that includes precise coordinates for every object, which can allow for further analysis of objects using the highest resolution.

The device takes precise photos of the crops using special radiation. Then, it transmits the data to computers. The computer analyzes the data and informs the agronomist on how to manage the particular zone (Will). This can be accomplished by an agronomist who would devote a whole day to it but a drone could perform this task in just one hour. Also drones are capable of automatizing each step of farming, reducing the risk of human errors , and making it easier for farmers to respond to any new threat like the onset of pests or drought increasing the profits and increasing the return on investment.


The emerging tech trends will be crucial in addressing the issue of forced and child labor since they are likely to provide more benefits than the labor types mentioned above. The drones have the potential to revolutionize agriculture. Considering the positive assessments regarding the future of this sector it is possible that investors will be waiting for firms that build drones for farmers. However robots working in other fields like sewing public services, sewing in factories, etc. are expected to decrease and eventually eliminate child labor as well as forced labor because of their efficiency, cost effectiveness and ethical standards when compared to the former.
