Inevitably. That's at least one of the reasons China is the most popular car market right now, especially for luxury and exotic cars

China is a communist country, what else would you expect? I guess that why Apple deals with China and Foxconn, cause deep down they operate on the same morals and practices. Shame Apple shame!!!

Communism has nothing to do with this. this is capitalism in its purest form. use the cheapest labour and sell for the highest profits, this is apples doing, and apple is an american company...

Should anyone be surprised when headlines involving the iphone manufacturing contains the words 'foxconn' and 'forced labour'. Apple sinks to new lows daily

They won't, bunch of hypocritical hipsters. They don't care as long as they get their shiny outdated overpriced novelties.

Its amazing that most of those "hipsters" are also obama voters and people that scream for the end of inequality at home.. but as long as its happening elsewhere in the world, they turn a blind eye because they dont want to give up their toys. Keep railing against the 1% while you support one of the dirtiest, and worst examples of capitalist companies in the world.

because most "hipsters" are also liberals. they go hand in hand. those "baristas" and the stereotypical iphone users are by and large democrats. Which feeds the irony of their likely support of "Occupy" movement and Obama, while they are also supporting one of the worst human rights offenders in the 1st world.

99% chance that the "complainers, activities and humanitarian people here speaking out against the so called slavery of Apples products as a result of forced labor are VERY LIKELY typing/writing/speaking their opinions and words of salvation about china's poor slaves on a device that was also likely mas produced/assembled by china laborors.

Irony, its farking thick at times....
