To create a utopian society in Ca., Gov. MB & other State leaders have driven out a lot of businesses to other states by over-regulating with environmental & pollution standards that are, at times, beyond the scope of existing technologies (additional businesses fled/flee due to very high tax rates). However, goods produced in other countries where pollution is hardly addressed, apparently are allowed into the state. It seems to send the message, 'you can't make it/pollute here (with U.S workers), make it/pollute elsewhere & you'll be fine.'
Likewise, the federal leadership has enacted new, drastically reduced, fishing catch limits that apparently will cause thousands of fishing families to go out of business, forcing them to sell their boats. Will the federal government still then allow the import unlimited quantities of the same fish from other countries whose fleets are not bound by those restrictive laws, yielding unlimited catches, fishing to depletion, &damaging the habitat?
I'm not saying this specifically about Apple, but about the corporate government double standard of attitude & values. Make the stuff, just NIMBY, "not in my back yard." It costs $ to not pollute, so jobs go overseas. We have less work in the U.S., so the need is great to buy cheap foreign goods. I'm sure nobody planned it that way. To boast about how "we cleaned up this State," yet allow 'dirty products' in from other countries undercuts the credibility of the efforts, however, 'noble!'
