How Our E-Toys Are Made

by on August 21st, 2010

Hi, everyone.

As a new writer here at iPadinCanada.ca, I now run the risk of making my first post a political polemic, but I read this article from the U.K.’s The Independent, and the gears in my head started whirring.

It talks about the struggle of Chinese workers to gain basic human rights and a fairer salary while working at companies like Foxconn, makers of electronic goods such as the iPhone and iPad for Apple.  I don’t point to this article to chastise anyone for buying Apple products; I’ve got a bunch myself.  It’s more of a reminder for people to keep in mind how our electronic toys are made, and a prompting for readers to offer their opinions on whether this is a concern for them when buying them.

If so, you can leave Apple feedback about the iPad and its manufacture through this feedback form.  If you prefer to take your concerns right to the top, you can try to email Steve Jobs directly.  He has been known to respond to emails received through this address, although I recommend using a catchy subject line to stand out.

As I said, I’m at the risk of appearing like a rabble-rouser my first time out.  Nonetheless, let me pose a question for discussion: Are workers rights in overseas electronic goods factories an issue for you when you buy Apple products?
