Apple’s Cheaper iPhone Named in Watchdog Group’s Labor Abuse Report

The new, cheaper iPhone has been officially revealed, but it was outed much earlier in a report by watchdog group China Labor Watch. The report accuses Apple supplier Pegatron of several worker abuses, including safety violations, poor living conditions, and excessive overtime.

Apple, out of all the companies who mistreat workers and contract with inhumane suppliers, you are the worst, partly because you so little incentive to do so.

Is it really better to grow your already huge cash reserves and profits than to use that profitability and your market position to make life better for your direct employees and contractors?

Apple, you are a disgusting example of extreme capitalism, unregulated and taken to its logical and inhumane limits. I will do what I can to avoid supporting you and to discourage others from supporting you.
