Artificial wombs have become a luxury in society, allowing them to forgo the burden of carrying a child for nine months. Originally, this was an expensive process that currently only the wealthy and privileged can afford. However, big corporations such as Amazon, General Motors, etc, have also taken an interest in the technology, in order to use for their own purposes. The prime focus of a corp is to maximize shareholder profits. One way to accomplish this is to reduce the cost of labor. This can be done by corporations investing in this technology in order to grow their own workforce.
These machines are housed in specially built facilities, where they can be monitored around the clock. Embryos are fertilized in vitro and placed in a artificial womb made from cloned samples. These would be grown from a collection of cells to create a cheaply mass produced womb casing that can be made reusable for a set number of times. Facilities would have the capacity and space to create thousands of these machines cheaply. With this method, a company can create its own work force without the need to supply market rate compensation. These children will be grown in these pods and decanted when they have fully developed. They would then be raised by the company and indoctrinated in its culture. These children will be legally owned by the corporation as their "parent", spending their lives working for it in order to pay back the cost that it took to grow them.
With companies no longer having to pay a living wage to outside workers, this creates opportunities to save large amounts of money. I would like to prevent this from happening. At first I thought that simple legislation could be put in place that forbid companies from doing this. However, this could only be realistically adopted in first world countries, where the rule of law can be enforced. A company could easily move or simply outsource to a less scrupulous nation, where laws are lax or consistently ignored, and grow a workforce without any legal ramifications. Others could simply bribe legislators under the table and authorities to look the other way.
What limitations must I introduce in order to prevent corporations from doing this?
