Apple is among the wealthiest corporations in the world and also among the American corporations which sends jobs overseas in order to become even wealthier. Unfortunately, for the liberal minded and social conscious Apple executives, thousands of Chinese workers are being subjected to horrendous working conditions in order to enhance corporate profits. Instead of dealing with long hours of work or mistreatment of workers, executives want the world to know they oppose oppression of workers.
Apple Chief Executive, Tim Cook, took a verbal stand for decent working conditions. “We believe workers everywhere have a right to a safe and fair work environment.” He asked the Fair Labor Associatiion to investigate. As one Chinese human rights activist noted, “we already know what the conditions are like in factories.”
When in doubt, ask for another “study” of what you know.
