Apple Every year on World Consumer Rights Day (March 15), government-controlled China Central Television (CCTV) broadcasts a special report (in Chinese) damning companies for abusing Chinese consumers. This year the targets included Apple. Apple was accused of giving Chinese consumers worse service than customers in other countries, specifically of giving them replacements that included cases from their old phone, while customers in the UK would get a 100% new product.

I'm not doubting what you wrote, but I do think people at Foxconn and similar companies have pretty crappy jobs and don't get very paid very well while Apple has piles of money in the bank collecting dust.

The world would be a happier place if work conditions improved and the workers could benefit from Apple's success.

BTW it's not just Apple, it's also other companies that have no problem with Chinese companies exploiting Chinese people.
