  •  Apple gets singled out b/c they squirm (6+ / 0-)

    Greenpeace does the same thing with environmental stuff, even though Apple tries harder than most, if not all of the other computer makers. Apple actually sends people over and tries to inspect their plants to verify labor conditions meet at least a minimal standard. (Of course, the inspections are probably rigged by the Chinese companies who know it's coming.) All the computer manufacturers use the same companies. The company everyone freaks out about is Foxconn, but for some reason only Apple gets nailed for using them. They make all 3 of the major gaming consoles, the Kindle, Dells, Lenovos, etc.
