what did you expect? That apple cares about people? yOu think any of these corporations care about people? They only care about CASH.
Consumers drives the demand for products,they dont care if the product is produced by child labor,harsh working conditions and low pay,consumers needs their fix for flashy items.Its been going on for centuries.Scary thing if a huge company like Apple lacks the control on treatment of labor imagine the horrible conditions for the smaller factories?.Nike and Gap had major problems also with treatment of their workers in South America and Asia.
