I wonder why they call it "MacRumors"...?
I've often wondered what a "lion's share" was - never having gotten a look at the lions' contract - So now we've nailed it down at 60%?   Sneaky lions...   Apple often does this though, and you really can't often expect them to be able to use just one supplier, especially at a major release...   I think I recall a big to-do about the MBAir a few years ago, and Samsung vs. Toshiba components? Funnily enough, I think it was still early enough that folks were clamoring...
Well, but hey - a full week out. I think with 7.0 it needed addressing the second day out(?)

This is probably the kind of thing where a kernel of truth  has been given the most "newsworthy" spin...gee, wonder why they'd do that?   (oops, was typing - yeah! Waldobushman)
I may have missed the sarcasm mark, but otherwise, it just seems like some folksview the world with their eyes crossed...
To me, the problem with your reasoning is that, while the union protecting employees may be corrupt,the business or government entity they are to be protected from most certainly is.   Further, those venal entities always have the organization (unity of purpose, ironically), and the financial means not to play the game you describe one-on-one with workers,but play it instead by controlling  and co-opting regulating and legislating bodies. They may be imperfect, but unions...
