I think I would have thought twice before getting my new phone had I known about this earlier.

I am signing because it's normal that in 2012, the Chinese factories deliver good working conditions to their workers.

We must inform our children about the HUMAN COST of these "Status Products". So they grow up to be aware of the World and to ask questions.

If this wouldn't be permitted in the United States, why does Apple permit the flagrant abuse of its workers overseas? In another time, Lewis Hine photographed children working in dangerous conditions, at all hours, and for pennies. His photography brought about the Child Labor Laws, the bulk of which we have in place, in the United States, today. Why would Apple permit this type of behaviour elsewhere? We (Apple consumers) are already paying premium prices for computers and other Apple gadgets, but I will not purchase another Apple product until July 1, 2012, when some of the labor laws enacted go into effect.

And Apple? How about bringing some of the outsourced work to the USA. Unemployment may be around 8%, but for me, it's 100%. And I use your computers, but I won't buy your "toys."

I love Apple, I'm a fan of Mac products and of course Sir Jonathan Ive - but knowing that their human rights record is beyond reproach would make me more of a fan.

If China wants to be a big whig, they need to get with the program and start safety and environmental programs for both their people and the products that they produce.

I bought my very first Apple Computer (a Mac) in 1986. I have been a loyal Apple Customer and am now a Apple Shareholder. Apple do the right thing---protect your workers. Now that Steve Jobs has passed the torch on to others, open the doors to new ways and new mindsets in the company and share dividends, protect workers, and treat everyone with dignity and respect. With all the profits that Apple has made, the cost will be minimal and the effect will be great.

Thanks for adding your voice.

American companies MUST be held accountable for the mistreatment of humans by the vendors they contract outside of the U.S.

It's disrespectful, they should get better standards.
