Shame on you Apple

Nothing annoys me more then a big company that takes their business to another country for cheap labor, screws the country out some of their taxes and then brings it all back to us to charge us an outrageous price for their product. Not only that, but their product even spies on us.

 

I guess we are just as much to blame because we let them get away with it and we also support it every time we buy from them. No wonder they dont feel any urgent need to stop doing this. This however is one thing we can control if we so choose to do. Question is, will we? Or will we be typical as we usually are, complain for a week or two, speak our outrage and then buy again next Christmas?

 

While we are busy being typical, let us look once again to what we are basically saying its okay to do to people on the far side of the world. Maybe after seeing it all once again we will play a different card this time and stop buying until they stop abusing.

 

 

Apple factories in China, bad working conditions, suicides

 

Where are Iphones made?

 

 

The components manufactured by those companies all around the world are ultimately sent to just two companies to assemble into iPods, iPhones, and iPads. Those companies are Foxconn and Pegatron, both of which are based in Taiwan.

Although, Foxconn and Pegatron are Taiwanese manufacturers, their biggest plants are based in Shenzhen and Zhengzhou, China.

 

Hongfujin Precision Industry Co., a subsidiary of Foxconn, is a company which manufactures Apple's iPhone 5, iPhone X, iPad Pro, iPod as well as other products for multinational corporations. It is located in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, and Zhengzhou, Henan, China.

Working conditions in Apple factories are very bad

 

 

Apple under fire for illegal working conditions in China: https://qz.com/767087/apple-is-under-fire-for-excessive-overtime-and-illegal-working-conditions-in-another-chinese-factory/

 

 

A recent report workers in Pegatron’s Shanghai factory have been excessively overworked over the past year. Pegatron’s Shanghai workers—up to 100,000 of them during the peak season—were forced to work “excessive and illegal overtime” according to China Labor Watch. In the past year, the average worker racked up 80 hours of overtime a month. Over 62% of workers worked more than 100 overtime hours in March 2016. One worker worked 109 overtime hours, the New York-based non-profit writes, which works out to over 67 hours a week.

 

Of course  Apple stipulates that workers should have at least one day off a week and work no more than 60 hours. Apple didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Snow White

 

Why is there a bite out of the apple in the logo? Does it mean it's part of the Snow White program?
