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.

Foxconn is considered one of the best companies to work for in China. It is a 40 - 48 hour week of factory work. Hundreds of people show up every day to apply for jobs.


Most of China is undeveloped and in poverty. All those people are showing up to apply because they're one of the biggest employers, not because they're one of the best companies to work for. Remember, Foxconn is also the place where there have been multiple suicides from workers due to work conditions. So many in fact that they've installed nets around the buildings to deter people from jumping.

It's no secret that life working at Foxconn is horrible. At least that's what the people who actually work there think. You're free to think whatever you want.
