from the sweatshop
I am not a fan of the iPhone, but neither am I anti-Apple. In fact I believe I am in possession of things that could have come from a sweatshop in other parts of the world. Electronic goods, apparels, furnitures. Things that the workers on the assembly line can't afford themselves. How many foreign workers can afford the HDB flats / condominiums that they helped build?
Is it our consumerism / materialism that is fueling other people's misery? One may argue that without us buying these products, the workers will be jobless. But that is no excuse for ill-treating workers. Like I said before, bosses will always want the most output from the workers with the least input, while the reverse is true for workers.
Either way, I still won't buy an iPhone.
