“Tell Apple to Stop Exploiting its Chinese Factory Workers!”

What's At Stake?
Stand with Chinese workers making Apple iPhones

At Foxconn, a major manufacturer of Apple's iPhone, iMac, iPad and iPod touch, a disturbing wave of suicides recently caught the media's attention. But Apple has been on notice for 5 years as the target of a campaign by USAS' Hong Kong partner Students and Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM). Despite persistent attempts by SACOM to get Apple to stop the abuses at Foxconn, Apple CEO Steve Jobs outrightly denied the problem until just days ago. As recently as June 2, Jobs denied the factory was a sweatshop and dismissed the suicides as insignificant.
