    I would gladly pay double. With the state our economy is in bringing jobs back to America is the right thing to do. These situations would be easier to oversee in our own backyard.

    If I remember correctly, an article on here a little while back explained this situation a bit further. Foxconn has an ungodly number of employees, especially at "iPod City", and the article pointed out that while that temporary surge in suicides was most unfortunate, the average suicide rate was still significantly lower than the general population.

    Sadly way more than 50% of current customers would go elsewhere if the price doubled.

    I've had some big wigs from major companies come to my Business Management Lectures course. When they talk about taking over at an overseas plant to increase revenue and productivity they all say that the first thing they had to change were working conditions. And the stuff that Apple has reported was normal for them to see unfortunately. But it's nice when someone takes over that actually cares about working conditions and makes a change. Every little bit helps.
    yea i highly doubt those saying they are not going to buy apple products anymore are just talking in the moment. Its horrible how some companies just look past the conditions of workers overseas, it would be impossible to make the kind of revenue that those companies make here in the states. i would say that we have too many regulations and wage changing restrictions that we do this to ourselves, we put these working conditions on others

    Agreed.
