A Big Apple fan
“The first thing came to my mind about Apple products is ..they are expensive. Still expensive to our standards even if they are produced at a place where labor is cheap and production cost is low. But still, can we, as die-hard Apple fans, do something to protect the rights of Chinese factory workers? May be, we can spend $5 more on an Apple product that we buy and make a change to the life of a factory worker, get him better wages, provide him better living dorm, and reduce the working time? Cause-related Marketing can be a good idea here but the main question is how many of us are really willing to spend $5 more for an Apple product?”
“I feel bad that the demand of luxury products here cause a lot of suffering in other countries. I think the best solution is, we should try to make these jobs come back to the United States. After all, letting these jobs go abroad doesn’t really help economy here. And Apple is not taking serious consideration to those suppliers who did unscrupulous exploitation of poor factory workers”.
“I just hope more people will know about the harsh working conditions in China and start giving pressure to Apple. Hopefully, Apple will set up a plant with an automatic production line here in the near future. In this way, not only the Chinese workers problems will be resolved, the next generation of college graduates will also get a better opportunity to find a job here”.
