Socially Irresponsible Company Dying for the Apple • The staff in Shenzhen factory perform dangerous tasks. Wiping screens and shaving aluminum from the edge of the apple logo. That is really bad for their health and can cause health problems. • 18 workers in Shenzhen committed suicide due to the working conditions in the factory. The working conditions were so bored and intolerable that the employees killed themselves • Don’t buy from Apple because they don’t know how to treat their workers inside Apple's Chinese 'sweatshop' factory where workers are paid just £1.12 per hour to produce iPhones and iPads for the West January, 25,2013
NEC help the environment because they are being responsible by not dumping their waste in ways that will damage the environment. They also don’t own sweatshops. Apple does not care for its employees and environment because they have horrible working conditions for their sweatshops and they dump their waste in anywhere they can.
