Default Tim Cook Responds to Claims of Factory Worker Mistreatment

Apple's CEO has responded to a New York Times report on the horrible working conditions at the plants that make its products by saying the cares about every worker in its supply chain. This statement mirrors the one given during all the suicides, the explosion, claims of abuse and the worker revolt and the most recent mass suicide attempts. Heck, they should have this speech memorized by now. The report also recalls a scenario in which a factory had to call the parents of a young worker to inform them of their son's admission to the hospital. Horrid points of excessive overtime are included, in addition to a gruesome quote from a former Foxconn executive: "Apple never cared about anything other than increasing product quality and decreasing production cost." On top of all of that, the report shares word from former Apple executives, such as this quote: "We've known about labor abuses in some factories for four years, and they're still going on." tment/
