    Oooh.... Apple is doing their own investigation on themselves. Do we trust them?

    How much good is this going to do for the children? Apple may cut off this supplier, but I'm sure there are other companies who won't care about child labor, opting for maximum profit.

    They've been doing their own investigations for quite a while now, since 2007 or something like that I think. Thankfully they also allow the FLA to regularly do independent inspections since all the bad press coverage last year so it doesn't really matter if they can be trusted or not. :)

    Now those children are out of jobs, and cannot help their father support their family.

    Good to see Apple is sticking by their company morals

    But it's a crime. Is not the child's responsibility to support their family it should be the other way round. If the parents aren't fit to bring up a child then they shouldn't have any. These kids are losing their childhood to pay for the upkeep of their families. Is that a fair burden for a child to have?

    It seems like Apple is the bad guy no matter what then.

    I guess I was trying to say, not everywhere is like America. I didn't see it as serious because I read "child labor", in which I assumed the child volunteered to work whereas "child slaves" isn't.

    My mistake =P.
