Apple is responsible for this. It tells us a lot about what they think. Bad enough to send the jobs overseas, but they care nothing of the conditions people work in. Disgraceful. If I owned the company I would be horrified and do all to make changes or close it. I don't own a cell phone but if I do I'll remember this post.

5 steps to bring back our jobs.


1 - Universal Healthcare - Rest of west has it - all the jobs are going places that either have this, or have 3rd world conditions in which healthcare involves death in the street.

2 - College for All - Most students in western countries get paid monthly to attend college.. Say what you want about this - it leaves USA now in the 15th and 17th and 23rd places on things like math, science, and even basic reading - at all... literacy is falling away here.

3 - Technical School for those who cannot make it into college - In most western countries, students are paid monthly to attend technical schools after high school, if they cannot or do not want, to attent 2-4 year university

4 - State pensions for all. SS guarnateed for all. Double the SS exemption. Companies do not want to pay these... Its obvious.

5 - Market protectionism, tarrifs, VATs, etc. - Just look at what China does to US companies trying to import into their country for some ideas - or look at what USA was doing in the time of and before Raygun... And what NAFTA in particular ended\changed.

What's the penalty for breaking the pledge?
 Quoting: BRIEF


in China if the have to shoot you, because you have broken the law, they send a bill to the family.


It could be if they commit suicide, their families would be fined or penalized in some way.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1353076


That's actually very true.

I repaired electronics for 15+ years. Many of the old items are still going. New stuff? Well, you are lucky if they last. If they don't, you are even luckier if the manufacturer supports the product with parts. Most of the time they do not. The idea is to throw it in the trash.

BTW, have a Magnavox television I use in the basement. Built in 1983-early cable compatible model and it still works like a champ. Televitz in the the living room is a 32" Sony made in 2005 that a friend was going to throw away. Had a bad diode that costs 7 cents. It's worked fine since I replaced it.

My point is that for all of the lip service these companies pay to green this and green that-it's bullshit. If that were true they would build decent products that last and would offer some product support for repair/refurb.

I feel bad for the Chinese workers but this is kind of like the dope trade. There is a demand and that demand will be filled. If people stopped buying this crap, it might change things. But, as long as people will pitch a tent overnight to be lined up in the morning for Apple's latest gadget, there will be slave shops making them. Ditto for the game console companies, etc.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1360794


Apple certainly makes their products not to last more than 6 years. Husband found a 2003 Apple iBook lap top computer at an auction. It works perfectly. However, you have trouble browsing the internet with it because YOU CAN'T UPGRADE IT. Best thing to do with it is make documents and watch dvd's. Why does apple do this? In the name of greed so you are forced to buy a new one. Jerks.

I'm not trying to justify the pricks who made the workers sign the pledges but most likely these pledges mean that if you decide to jump off the building, you are not going to get some of those benefits the company promised you. Simply = you kill yourself and you will lose money.

I have an iPod Nano 5th gen I received for Christmas a few years ago. (I'm not an Apple user at all) I pull it out of the junk drawer every few months and just charge it. I like to think that charge gives a few poor Chinese souls a little after life for a few hours.

By the way, once charged, the battery is dead in 72hrs. It just sits there turned off. Apple=shitty products. My cheap LG Optimums smart phone can sit idle for more then 7 days and have some charge left. Then again I have few friends, so not many calls.
