Foxconn India workers beset by worms in food, no running water1. We live in a time where companies are only as good as their weakest link in the production process including external contractors/suppliers, especially when said company is a behemoth with clear power/influence to actually drive change. Apple really does have a key role to play in this given how their actions or inactions will shape not just their own 'partners' but also set the tone for the rest of the industry/sector.
2. That being said, I do balance my thought process on this particular topic with respect to India which has implemented some pretty strong 'protectionist' measures and suspect Apple/Foxconn are only doing what they need to do to meet these measures. I do wonder how big of a market India is for Apple though.
3. I appreciated the Shawshank reference above... watched it again a couple of weeks ago.
