BBC News - Apple hit by China Foxconn factory report While i'm sure there's many comapnies in similar positions, Apples has just reported something like 589 billion in profits last year. Of which they offered a 1% dividend on. So, theres still 480 -odd billion in proft lying around.... maybe it's million, i forget. either way, Surely, they can afford to pay a little bit better, no? If you are an apple consumer, does this make you feel bad? Knowing you paid $700 for an iPad that cost $.50 to make and likely hurt some poor Chinaman in the process?
