Music plays on my Apple laptop…the back reads: “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China.”
According to the “executive summary” for the China Labor Watch Website “workers making the iPhone” are exploited, paid just $1.85 per hour.
(Compare to my $11; compare to $7.25, America’s minimum wage).
The Guardian reports that the Foxcon Longhua factory in China, which manufactures iPhones,
has body catching nets to curtail its suicide epidemic.
Should I trash what the workers produced in protest, and boycott?…
