Boycott Apple?

Overseas workers are being exploited, but why target Apple as the sole corporation involved?

It is easy to get caught up in the passion of this issue and I am always willing to vote with my wallet, but after some study and thought, I am of the opinion that Apple is striving to become part of the solution.

Time will tell.

Pretty much, Apple is by no means the only company using this kind of foreign labor!

Yes, I saw the exploitation article, too . . . and I came to much the same conclusion. Let's do a little research on, say, IBM and fine out how those PCs from China are manufactured before we jump on Apple. Or Dell, or Acer, or HP, or whatever company.

I am sure that this is a serious issue and that exploitation of workers is a serious problem. It needs to be addressed but not by finding individual companies to pick on.
