Another anti iPhone article. Why would this only affect iPhone production and not the thousands of other models of products that Foxconn produces including android phones?
Well mn1native, if you'd have read the article, you would have read this: "some workers were unhappy when Apple strengthened quality inspections of the iPhone 5" Is any other company responsible for strengthened quality inspections of the iPhone 5?? Maybe the article was blurry on your iPhone.
If you don't think these worker aren't slaves, you better do your research. It costs Apple less than $190 to produce the Iphone 5, sells for 600 plus. We need jobs here! Maybe it's time we demand Apple builds it's phones here. I guess when pigs fly.
Meanwhile an iPhone owner in the United States uses his iPhone to blog about not being able to find a job.
I hope there is a huge labor revolt in China. We need their standard of living and expectations to go up, it will make the cost of manufacturing go up and make domestic manufacturing look more attractive. Of course if that happens, our Titans of Industry will just find a different impoverished country to exploit for cheap labor, so what's the point?
marrman - if Apple built the iPhone5 here it would probably cost $2000 bucks.
