Apple doesn't manufacture one single product or component in the US - and they don't pay any taxes to US government either. They get the protections of the US against companies like Samsung (who make a better product), access to the US market, and they contribute NOTHING here. They suck people's money out with crap they don't need and have contributed to the demise of the Us economy. And yet people like up like lemmings to get the new shit box as soon as it comes out.

Happy Apple Days are here again.

I thank them, i mean, it beats getting them off the street or doing another useless job. Atleast this one will make people happy. Who else should we have make them? People here wont take the job, they take the job overseas because we are spoiled little bitches over here. Good for them making money.

See, it's not only the U.S. govt. that conspires against the working people with big corps. The Chinese govt. does it, too.

Why not crawl up their asses as well as the corporation's? Because without them none of this would be possible.

I hate cell phones, don't own one and will never own one.

Finding U.S.A. made products is very difficult and to try and find everything you need made here, is nigh impossible.

But I do my best. I actually found some dryer sheets made in U.S. today. I was thrilled. (sad, isn't it?)

Dear OP,

The hard work of the Chinese workers were/are not being 'thanked' by words, but by every check they receive. Now that we seem to have some manners, they would like to thank the Americans, too. They'd like to thank you for letting all those jobs being sent to China. Apple would like to thank everyone, as well. They'd like to thank China for working for low wages, letting them make more money. A big 'thank you' to the Americans for buying a new thing every time it comes out to squeeze their money. Last, but not least, they'd like to wish you luck with your new toys and hope you'd make it through the next depression with your new toy while they watch and laugh.

Sincerely,

The people.

They make on average $2.93 an hour.

Re: Thank You, Millions Of Anonymous Chinese Workers Making $2 An Hour, We Love Our iPhone 5s!
I don't know if $2 an hour is that terrible, it depends on the purchasing power in China. I met this guy who told me that while he was in Vietnam for holiday he had dinner for $2. Having said this, Apple is not unique: Nike was accused of the same practices a decade ago. What i find deceitful is that companies defend themselves by saing that customers want to pay as little as possible. But this is a false premise. It's all about maximizing profits, even if it's unethical. These companies won't mind having their products manufactured by kids if they can decrease their labor costs even further. This is the shadow side of capitalism; Americans will keep on defending it because they think that communism is the only alternative. This will go on till there are only a few companies left worldwide who'll enslave us.

Re: Thank You, Millions Of Anonymous Chinese Workers Making $2 An Hour, We Love Our iPhone 5s!
It seems to me like there is mass, mass denial going on. We are all responsible to some extent.

We don't know how to cope with our heavily fragmented realities; the internal stories that frame our lives are in conflict. Generally speaking, we are lacking basic cultural guidance for happiness, peace and fulfilment; it actually seems like our social and political organisations just induce dissonance.

Some of us are more affected than others. Eventually, some strange social patterns begin to emerge. The prevalence of collective behaviour patterns that resemble widespread addiction is staggering.

Our institutions and other forms of social organisation are draining the life and humanity from us. Our dogmas promote nihilism, fundamentalism and fetishism. We are unable to cultivate balance within ourselves so we yo-yo between mental states. We are unable to cultivate balance in society so it is involuntarily thrust upon us in the form of opposing radicalisms.

Our experiment has gone awry and no one wants to admit it...Its ok though, its at this point of monumental challenge that we have opportunity for immense individual and collective development.

The precipice appears on the horizon... coffeecup

If this Iphone was manufactured in the US.

The Union would be on strike, no phones would be made. Apple would be sued for begging some who is making $50/hour to install the battery because they hurt their little pinky finger and their A$$ hurts from sitting in a chair.

The Union would force Apple to outsource all the work to subsuppliers so that the Union would have 100 Union workers to just put the Iphone in the box at the Apple Factory.

The US is screwed up because of Unions.

I know it because I work in the industry and see it every freakin day.

Unions = legalized Mafia - they are a gang of bullies with a mafia leader who calls the shots.

Re: Thank You, Millions Of Anonymous Chinese Workers Making $2 An Hour, We Love Our iPhone 5s!
The iPhone 5 debuted to rave reviews yesterday.
By now, millions of them are in the hands of rich consumers in the 7 lucky countries that got the iPhones first.
And, for the most part, these customers love them.
As well they should!
Because, relative to what we all carried around as recently as 6 years ago, the iPhone 5 is nothing short of a miracle.
So, it's time to send a thank-you note to the folks who made our iPhones.
No, not Apple--Apple and its shareholders have been thanked already, billions of times over, and they'll get thanked even more in the months ahead. The iPhone is the most profitable product in history. And it has made Apple the most valuable company in the world.
It's time to say thank you to the people who actually made the iPhones--as in, put them together.
In other words, the millions of Chinese workers who have worked feverishly to assemble millions of iPhones part-by-part over the past few months.
Assembling iPhones isn't exactly a high-glamour job. In fact, it's an exhausting, backbreaking, and mind-numbingly tedious job. And, unfortunately, making iPhones is not a job that pays enough to enable the folks who make the iPhones to actually buy an iPhone. (Even a crappy old iPhone 4 would be way out of reach for the people who make them, because it's ~$400 without a contract).
So, on behalf of the millions of us who just got our new iPhones, here's a big 'thank you' to the millions of people who made them.
"THANK YOU!"
By the way, if you don't believe that making iPhones is a tough, thankless job, read the description below, from someone who briefly helped make your iPhone.
A reporter for a Shanghai newspaper spent a week working in a Foxconn factory helping to build iPhone 5s.
He described the working and living conditions as a "nightmare," and he couldn't quit soon enough.
The reporter's story was translated by MicGadget, and you can read the whole thing here. We've also written a summary here.
The report doesn't reveal anything horrific or shocking, but unlike many Foxconn stories, it really makes you understand how godawfully boring, difficult, tedious, and physically strenuous the work is, especially when you remember that it pays only $2 an hour.
