Introduction(Introduce the topic while MENTIONING the reasons for each view. Reserve your opinion for the conclusion)

There is a heated debate on whether workers should wear uniforms or not. While supporters of the uniform claim that this increases productivity and team spirit of workers, the opponents believe this not only violates their freedom of choice but also creates a segregation from management leading to social inequality.

Body Paragraph 1(Reason supporting uniforms)

Researchers have proven that workers perform better in an organized atmosphere. A uniform is one of the greatest symbols of such an environment. Workers with uniform see other workers as team members and are more likely to assist each other in completing tasks. On the other hand, employees without a dress code are not only more unorganized in operations but also more individualistic. This hampers individual, team, and organizational productivity.

Body Paragraph 2: (Reason opposing uniforms)

On the other hand, many people believe that enforcing a dress code violates the workers’ freedom of choice. Not allowing workers to wear clothes according to their choice unnecessarily shifts focus from work to a dress code. This hampers organizational performance.

Body Paragraph 3: (Reason opposing uniforms)

Moreover, a dress code creates a segregation between management and the workforce. Some people view this as social inequality between the two classes. They believe that this is often the source of economic inequality and worker exploitation. For instance, a dress code in Maruti Suzuki became a source of unity for workers during the 2016 strike against management’s autocratic policies.

Conclusion: (Conclude with your opinion) 

Despite strong arguments by proponents of both opinions, I believe that dress codes cannot be implemented without understanding the nature of an activity. While dress codes should be mandatory for construction workers for safety reasons and for store workers to give better service, these are not required in a technology or newspaper business. Judicious implementation of this idea is important to prevent any unnecessary discords.

  1. The discussion on wearing a uniform is a debatable one and each side has its logical arguments. Having a dress code in a company unify the employees and enhance the collaboration between them whereas being free to choose whatever you want to dress reveal the social inequality and there will be discrimination based on the economic classes.
    On the one hand, some people may state that having a certain uniform will increase the production rate as the workers feel that they are all united which paves the way towards collaborative work. For example, New York Times magazine published a survey done among the most productive companies in the world where we found that wearing a uniform was one of the most crucial factors that lead to the dramatic increase in the production rates.
    On the other hand, being totally free to come to your work by your choice of clothes will lead to discrimination based on social income where all the workers are not from the same status. Hatred and bigotry also will rise as they are not looking alike and that led to segregation in the working atmosphere
    In conclusion, having a uniform increases the productivity of different companies while providing no dress code leads to disastrous consequences and hatred between the members of the working teams. In my opinion, all companies must avoid the differences in social classes and have to unify their teams by addressing a certain uniform.
