After reading this article I began to wonder why Apple is having a PR issue with this. By that I mean, I would think a large organization like Apple would have already known about working conditions in factories that are supplying them with products.
If this is a surprise to Apple, I wonder if they are reconsidering their operations and supply chain procedures or if they are hoping this will all blow over? It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
In today’s globalization I would think any company, especially one the size of Apple, would have an inner department responsible for their CSR program. If Apple does not have one, now might be the time to reconsider.
