If only apple would move those factories to America, you know, where their company is founded. But alas, the shareholders would piss their pants at the reduced margins because they would have to pay a decent wage, have factories up to par, and show that they care about people in general.

They could charge the same prices they are charging now, and still make a profit, that profit just would not be as large. Of course their stock prices would take a massive hit I would say for maybe the first year, maybe 2, but once they stabalize then its just business as normal.

And thats with any company, not just apple.

But I do agree with you that sometimes, Unions can take things a little too far.

Police were sent in the middle of the night, when they thought everyone was asleep to stir up things.

Its a shame.
