Of course the pressure in those jobs is high. Otherwise consumer electronics would cost at least 50% more across the board.

Foxconn also denied using child labor, beating their employees and other violations that were proven to be true.

BTW, using Chinese slaves does not result in a 50% drop in electronics cost. All of the goods made in China could be made in the U.S. and sold with the same profit margins for only about 10-15% more than current prices when you consider all the costs associated with importing these products from China including transportation costs.

Trying to justify the use of Chinese slaves to produce goods sold in the U.S. is akin to trying to justify rape. It simply can not be done.

Why o why you always just retransmit hypocritic articles. People at Foxconn never strikes :D

These quality control workers probably strike because of idiotic work agreement they had to sign and penalties they pay from their own pocket even when they're not fault. Apple yet again has some faulty design, now it's not a glass or overheating it's crappy finish that some crazy designer said it will work. Well IT AINT WORK. If those people know that person i think they sould chain him on haystack and burn (doesnt matter it aint their culture)

And you say that problem is that these HypeFonz would cost twice if theyre produced in US or Europe. Cmon ... they cost that insane of money because managers stick that wealthy bonuses up in their ass. Not because of underpaid workers in some country that suppress workers rights.

And pitty thing is that these recalls of HypeFonz5 are being resold by some schemers over the net in third world countries as REFURBISHED. No one even mentions damaged crappy products just like HypeFonz4 were. ofc people like to buy overpriced things like 600USD CrapFon for just 300USD.

Well all this blingy-things can happen when there's enough moronic people buying crappy HypeFonz in the first place. And even wait in long lines to buy them.

Tnx for the info at least now we know why there are scheme to get rid of junk at affordable price.
