Apple enslaving Chinese workers

This is what Mail on Sunday tells us about the manufacturing of iPods from Steve Jobs’ company that is using advertisments asking us to Think different with the assistance of left-wing political idols as prominent as Gandhi or Chavez.

But the 200,000 Foxconn workers, one of the Chinese suppliers of Apple, would be paid only 50$ per month (which is low even for a Chinese wage).

The attack may not be supported by a lot of evidence for the time being, this may look like a very common practice in the assembly manufacturing sub-contracting industry, but Apple could (should?) feel forced to have the highest industry standard, knowing their political posture. In this context, Apple announced to MacWorld UK that they would be investigating the issue.
