Apple So, Apple is serious about this thing. Tim Cook has said in an interview the company plans to manufacture one line of Macs in the US, starting next year. Coincidentally (or not?), Foxconn has just announced it plans to expand its production facilities... Into the United States. There's no indication as of yet that the two are linked, but the coincidence is at least interesting.

I assume Apple will continue to use unskilled slave labor in unsafe factories to produce 98% of the devices. When shipped to the USA the last part of putting on the back sticker will fall to a US worker. Pretty sure it is a liberal tax incentive or tax break or both running this. Apple has never seemed to be concerned about how it's workers have been treated. I admit that most of that immoral treatment or workers is also to be blamed on the countries where this is allowed to happen. China is not only producing junk, it is producing environmental disasters. Sad part is that the stuff I thought was junk from Mexico is no considered great quality. How many parts from China end up with flaws? Everything from the air stems on my truck to the capacitors in all my electronic stuff has failed. Junk! It doesn't save money to throw this all away.
