    Apple has no real intention of cleaning up their suuply chain. Treating people like slave labor is what made them rich. This will be the standard for manufacturing jobs everywhere in the near future. This is the true color of free trade. The only thing that can slow this down is people voting with their wallet. What goes around comes around. If you buy from companies that use slave labor, you're helping to create more of those jobs. When decent employers go bankrupt because they can't compete with slave labor, those slave labor jobs may be all that's available to you.

    Yeah it's a sick world, well some companies are, & the people who run them, & their .Gov's that allow such things :thumbd:

    Not content with consistently tolerating those worker conditions/abuses, that enables Apple to make a Lot more $ than they otherwise would, they also make even More by evading tax http://appleinsider.com/articles/13...in-after-paying-no-2012-corporate-taxes-in-uk

    Nice company to give your 4 to, NOT :thumbd:

    No Apple products here :thumb:
