    "The bottom line is that iPhones and iPads cost what they do because they are built using labor practices that would be illegal in this country — because people in this country consider those practices grossly unfair."

    If you truly have a problem with their business practices, don't buy their products.

    Clearly they don't. On the flip side, like the article said, the amount the workers make is still much more than they were before apple came to town.

    i live in a liberal college town, and work with the college all the time.

    they love to complain about the 1% ers, but yet nearly all own apple products and the college uses all apple products.

    they may make more than if apple never came to town, but apple can afford to pay better.

    again, any business that uses over seas labor should have the crap taxed out of them, and maybe the wall street protesters should go china!

    This is just it, right here. On the flip side, if you use Apple products (or wear Nike, etc, etc) don't complain about their business practices. They wouldn't run their businesses that way if it weren't profitable beyond belief, and you're the one handing the money over telling them, "Take advantage of more poor people so I can carry my tablet around instead of actually visiting a library."
