I'd wager not since few companies audit their suppliers like Apple.
Yes, let's encourage companies like Apple to continue to do the right thing by "rewarding" them with shame
1.) I don't have time to read internal audit reports by companies.
2.) Yes, I do boycott companies whose policies I don't agree with OR who use overseas factories and don't care about the conditions.
3.) I never said that Apple didn't care about the factory conditions in China, I just said that they should. This is not the first news report about this issue - there have been several over the years.
4.) The first 2 responders read into my post and didn't take it at face value. If Apple doesn't care about the conditions in the factories that they subcontract with, then shame on them. Their contracts are significant enough to force change for the better, and they should or else go with a different company.
5.) The first 2 responders points were moot because they were responding to something I didn't say (ie. reading too much into what I said).
