That's how it works...no labor control, no environmental control...China is a major producer because they are exploiting both the planet and the people. Brown toxic air and people working 16-hour days with little pay....it's an advantage they'll enjoy until they realize having all the money on the planet is worthless if you have no time or place to live.
Thank god no foreign detainees were sent there. These repeated abuses by a media darling company/country might actually deserve below the surface scrutiny! But no! Again, this will amount to a 'that's just China being China" and fade away until the next abuses in 5...4...3...2..1...!
That's right Apple, don't hire teen laborers just let them stay home and play video games like American kids do!!
Now you are talking about China and now remember when the Iphone 5 was coming out they made all the students in schools go tot eh factory and assemble them ummmmmm really ok
A tiny step in the correct direction if the article can be believed. A long way to go. Time is a wasting.
Yep, fire all the underage workers who CHOOSE to work to feed themselves and their families. Nice going Apple, now you really are leading people to die.
It just strikes me a really sad that another one of our products that was probably developed here in the US wound up in a foriegn country to be assembled. When is this country going to wake up and see what sending manufacturing jobs over seas is doing to this country. It was a sad day in America History when we allowed the first of our products to be manufactured over seas. They said it was good for our economy to allow it to happen, I don't see how when we have so many out of work here in the US.
these are assembly plants........wonder what percentage of their parts are made by free prison labor....where you're imprisoned for 10 yrs for failing to pay rediculous taxes, and told, don't work, don't eat.
No unions, here's what you get.
So what, I worked on the farm, harvesting, digging rows or weeds from corn, picking up olives on the ground after the workers moved on getting 10 cents an hour, hauled hay, picked fruit, knocked almonds, harvested watermellon and cantalope along side Meixcan workers, did yard work for spending money in the neighborhoods, sold papers, cards, etc. for Art Linkletter, the Grit Newspaper, etc. Did the milking by hand, not machines, hauled in the fire wood, etc. since I could walk, SO WHAT, I had a job from the first my first day at HS as a Freshman till graduating, $1 an hour, so what. On and on, did not seem to hurt myself or any others who worked as children, maybe learned responsiblity. If a child at any age can handle the work, why stop them.
i also worked and went to school and i worked the rest of my life ? maybe some of these familys need the money thier kids are making to survive ? whats so bad about that ? i can see if these children are homeless and being held against thier will to do this work as slaves ? but if they are just trying to help the family , then leave em alone ? or give them a bonus for doing the right thing .....
Honey, when Art Linkletter was on $1.00/hour was the going rate. That was 60 years ago. Get over the hump. It is the 21st century.
