Paper 1 Idea


For my essay, I would like to explore further the ethical issues associated with Apple and its factories in China, specifically Foxconn.  In the essay, I will discuss the conditions found in the factories and how they are ethically wrong and go against most American social standards.  I will focus specifically on stakeholder ethics and how Apple should force its factories to treat their workers better, since they are technically shareholders.  I will also touch on Mike Daisy’s expose of the Foxconn factory, its retraction, and the general reaction (or lack there of) in the US.

  1. The workers are not technically shareholders unless they purchase shares.

    Why do US social standards apply to China? Who decides that they should or shouldn’t?
