    both well said
    I Don't believe that to be true. Working that young doesn't promote anything but the cycle of illiteracy in countries where keeping the general population as ignorant as possible is the modus operandi (sp?) of that government.

    I liken it to how slaves were treated in America in the 19th century. If the entire group of people is illiterate, you can tell them anything to placate them - and use fear as the main tactic of discouraging any action other than what the governing faction desires it to be.

    I think that if the people in this country had any HOPE of accessing whats going on in the outside world things would be quite different indeed.

    It's been around awhile because many people demand cheap goods, whatever the consequences. Also, Apple etc. continue to give these factories business, so it is fully within their (Apple etc.) capacities to raise the wages and "make" the factories respect the rules, or even have their own centre in said country. But that might hurt profits, which would not be good for Mr Jobs & all.

    It is the major corp.'s that hold the power to raise the wages and consequently, the standard of living, of course coupled with the countries in question. Do you think S.Korea had as a high a standard of living before they got involved?

    Also, if you read a bit, you will find child labour is also used in UK and USA, in illegal/unregulated factories. Cleaners? Fruit pickers?

    For the geo-political ignoramuses, "Western World" also includes Japan and Australia, NOT just W.Europe and Americas. "Third World" is also not used anymore, except by anachronists, the current terminology, however vulgar is "under-developed", "developing" and "developed" nation states.

    And Apple caring?? Hahaha, good one. They shaft their own customers (who give Apple power and profit) by denying problems ( until recently) with expensive imacs. Think they care about people they have to pay and who don't give Apple money?

    They only alert about 3 factories as they don't want their all-mighty profits to suffer from bad press. Instead a bunch of morons will say, "cool Apple, they're doing something about it, they care." The rest of us will see through the BS, but still buy the new phones.

    By the way, when in June does it come out? ;-)
    eh i disagree ,even though japan inherited western influences and has major ties with western nations ,it is not considered as part of the western world ,sources from wikipedia is disputed , japan has it's own characteristics par orientalism and development to still be a part of the "eastern world" or "the far east"

    in political sense ,the western world will primarily include Western Europe, North America, Israel(yet disputed), Australia and New Zealand.

    as the modern world is growing ,the western and eastern world will continue to intertwine , eastern culture is growing rapidly in the western world so i hope one day there will be a balance of understandings within both worlds

    Its business guys and in business its all about "profit" period!!!!!

    Apple will do something about it but soon we all will forget it and so will apple. Again, apple knows it happens and we all know it happens. Apple took up this issue and published it to get a corporate stunt, sympathy stunt or whatever you may wanna call it.
    dont forget, apple is a business and business = profit.
    Soon this news will get old and we will forget and so will apple. Apple might do something about it as a stunt but inside, apple knows it is going to happen, no matter what!
    Nike! knows it happens and if someone raises the issue nike knows how to defend themselves by saying "we didnt tell those countries to hire child labour. We are deeply disturbed by this and will take strong necessary action" Soon the world will forget and it will continue to happen.
    Just imagine, if america is hit by recession and people here would do any kind of job to survive, then how about other countries like china etc.

    Dont go too far, go to manhattan new york. There are illegal workers who are working in the restaurants in the back, in the kitchen, go to china town - so many illegals working there, go to jackson heights - so many illegals working there, go to contruction sites in manhattan - so many illegals working there AND ABOVE ALL they get paid 4-5 dollars an hour, $300/week.

    So it will continue to go on. Just enjoy the ipad and iPhones
