What will result from the exposure of FoxConn working conditions?
hughye 2 years ago
Apple got a serving of bad publicity along with the good recently. At nearly the same time astonishing revenues were being announced, we started to hear about the working conditions at FoxConn, the Chinese factory where iPads and iPhones are assembled. According to reports that I have seen, workers live in overcrowded dorms, work extended hours and the workforce has included underage individuals. While I doubt these revelations will any direct impact on Apple or its revenues, could it actually result in working conditions being improved for those who put together all the tech products that we all love? I don't particularly enjoy purchasing a sense of guilt along with the latest devices.
