    Everyone flips out if there`s a minor defect on the phone or if the cost is too high.

    Well, this is what we get. Cheap high quality phones that causes the workers to lose their shi/t.

You think a company that is %20 the base of NASDAQ (Apple) would let out the fact that thier slave labor sweatshops are having a civil uprising? Wake up apple fanboys. Your coorperate god is EVIL

    I just can`t believe how little value companies put on these workers lives. I mean, if you`re Apple, and you have this outsource company building your overpriced for fractions of pennies on the dollar, how do you not put those workers on a frickin` pedestal. Apple could drown them in rewards and swag and barely cut into their profits. They are the reason Apple is what it is, and they don`t care.

    The comment that gets me most, though, is in the link. One guy is like, "If they don`t like it, they can quit." But Googling it? If you work for Foxconn, you live in company housing. You answer to company police. I have a feeling quitting isn`t a simple matter of going home and spending a week in your pajamas before going out on the job hunt.

    Sorry about the typo, but you can imagine what censored word was going to go after "Overpriced".

    Where I work, we spit on your pitiful .02mm tolerance. Try making something with .001mm tolerance. Then cry wolf about it.

    @sunnynphilly smartphones are expensive enough and they`re all made overseas. make them here where minimum wage is higher and a $600 phone will become $2000
