It's nice to see that so many people actually know when they are being baited by the media in an effort to draw readers to their periodicals. It's also nice to see so many people that still understand basic economics and business management, who while not unsympathetic to the plight of foreign workers, still understand the realities of global economics.

    We cannot have reasonable prices on consumer electronic products, nor compete globally, trying to pay American workers $35 an hour, Mon-Fri, 8-5, 2-3 weeks paid vacation, with Co provided medical and dental with China paying their workers $8 dollars a week. The fact that Apple cares at all about a company they do not own or run, speaks volumes.

    Tim Cook: "Apple cares"
    Bill Clinton: "I feel your pain"

    All meaningless spin. Actions count not words and Apple could easily stop the abuse for the entire industry by showing strong leadership here. So far they haven't to their shame and my disgust.

    Those who are calling attention to the gross labor abuses in Chinese factories are not suggesting the workers suddenly have Western benefits. They ARE saying it's reasonable to insist on providing environmental protection to workers and residents, improve working conditions so there aren't continuous suicides, and eliminate permanent motion-induced injuries.
