for their **** poor stand on human rights violations!!!

Before those blasts, Apple had been alerted to hazardous conditions
inside the Chengdu plant, according to a Chinese group that published
that warning.

“If Apple was warned, and didn’t act, that’s reprehensible,” said
Nicholas Ashford, a former chairman of the National Advisory Committee
on Occupational Safety and Health, a group that advises the United
States Labor Department.

'We've known about labor abuses in some factories for four years, and
they're still going on,' former Apple executive says, 'Why? Because
the system works for us'

Employees work excessive overtime, in some cases seven days a week,
and live in crowded dorms. Some say they stand so long that their legs
swell until they can hardly walk.

Under-age workers have helped build Apple’s products, and the company’s
suppliers have improperly disposed of hazardous waste and falsified
records, according to company reports and advocacy groups that, within
China, are often considered reliable, independent monitors.

In China, Human Costs Are Built Into an iPad


Published: January 25, 2012

The explosion ripped through Building A5 on a Friday evening last May,
an eruption of fire and noise that twisted metal pipes as if they were
discarded straws.
When workers in the cafeteria ran outside, they saw black smoke
pouring from shattered windows. It came from the area where employees
polished thousands of iPad cases a day.

Two people were killed immediately, and over a dozen others hurt.
