Workers at Apple's suppliers have died from explosions, suicide, and over-work (imagine a 34 hour shift). Meanwhile, Apple made $13 billion in profit in Q4, 2011, making them the most valuable company over Exxon.
Apple has been "...Ignoring the issue rather than solving it.” (Quoted from a former Apple executive in this New York Times story: http://nyti.ms/A4rWQI).
Apple could easily invest $1 billion of their profit to ensure that their suppliers use safe labor practices. If Apple insisted on safe practices, it would have been done by now. The ONLY way to get their attention, is for us to hurt Apple's bottom line by boycotting their product. Let's get the word out together and improve the dreadful situation for workers in China. WE ARE THE CONSUMERS, WE CALL THE SHOTS. If we don't do anything, nobody will.
Thank you for caring!
