ALTERNATIVE COURSES OF ACTION:
Stick to their goals to hire more workers by adding another processing plant
Merge machine labour and manual labour in production process
Replace the manual labour into automated labour process while the workers will serve as indirect employees.
The best alternative course of action is the second solution, which is merging of manual and automated labour process which is in production there will be a machine to help fasten their production for better labour process and to maintain the employment, there should also be a manual process for
the workers to help manipulate and monitor the machines.
We therefore conclude that our recommendation can help the company increase their production without eradicating workers in view of the fact that they can also help in monitoring the machinery to speed up production and we can assign them in manipulating the machines.
Adding more machines also means hiring more workers and as a result of having faster production. As their goal is to provide employment to many poor household they were able to maintain their social enterprise.
