Apple "Apple, the world's most profitable technology company, doesn't design iPhones here. It doesn't run AppleCare customer service from this city. And it doesn't manufacture MacBooks or iPads anywhere nearby. Yet, with a handful of employees in a small office here in Reno, Apple has done something central to its corporate strategy: it has avoided millions of dollars in taxes in California and 20 other states." Sure, this is all legal for companies to do (and Apple obviously isn't alone) but it does show you how much sense of morality companies have. Answer: none. But hey, it's legal, and the law is never wrong, right?

Taxes aren't the problem. Its the fact that we aren't charging Apple a tariff on every device they bring in the country. Charge a 20% tariff for imports and you will see jobs and manufacturing suddenly start springing up all over the place. We allow these companies to rip us off by moving money and jobs overseas. If they want access to the US market (arguably the richest market in the world) make them pay for it.
