    Anytime you have a Chinese company making devices for a US company, there will be conflicts. Apple has the moral obligation and public pressure to insure that all workers are treated fairly according to international standards. Foxconn is run in typical Chinese fashion which does not recognize the needs of individuals. Until Foxconn is held to the standards as accepted by the UN, they will always be under scrutiny and distrust by the West. Ironically, by the time they reach that level of trust, it is likely that production will be moved to other countries where workers are more desperate.
