“How can anyone support this!” I ask as I tap the upvote icon on my iPhone.
“Ewwww. So, when is the 14 coming out?”
Just for reference [Apple is in the top 10 highest profit per employee](https://www.visualcapitalist.com/20-companies-profit-per-employee). Other way more hated companies aren’t even on the list.

The whole process from beginning to end is kinda appalling. Even the cobalt in our phones was dug up from the hands of little kids in Africa. Then China buys the cobalt up without asking questions and then sells that onto other countries such as the USA. These big corporations don’t really care about that stuff and will always turn a blind eye. There’s a little documentary about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcJ8me22NVs
You don’t become a three trillion dollar company by being ethical and doing the “right” thing.
You will eat the bugs and sleep in the pods.
We as bad as slave owners of old. Except today, we are distanced from the actual slavery. We don’t see it, feel it, smell it. But we benefit from it just the same. We can consider ourselves better than people of the past, but the truth is that we all suck too.
Apple has been doin this shit for decades and still people praise them
Iirc they don’t directly operate the factories and contract other companies to make their stuff for them right?
This is not an Apple plant, it is a Foxconn plant. The headline is a bit misleading. Foxconn makes electronics for a whole bunch of electronics companies beside apple; they are the largest contract manufacturer in the world. If you own any electronics, many of them came from a Foxconn plant. (Source: I worked as an engineer for Foxconn’s largest and best competitor a few years back).
Women have separate food??
Would be nice if one of the biggest corporations made the situation better though. Instead they abuse it and make things worse for all parties involved besides the bigwigs bank accts. Better hurry the iphone14 is coming buy it now we won’t sell you the 15 the following year and the 16 the next. Meanwhile the tech inside hasn’t changed much we’re not getting anything that didn’t already exist…except more or less cameras for some reason
If u really cared u would not use iphones but ofc ur going to justify it by saying how u need your phone, how samsung does the same, as is the same with every other pressing issue, easy to talk game bout accountability and boycott but none the balls to do simply because u use and enjoy the product. I type this on my iphone because frankly i dont give a shit.
I love how people are deflecting like yeah Tim Apple doesn’t care I have an Android as if “insert your phones manufacturer” doesn’t do this type of shit. It’s just Apple.
And then the US themselves do this to their own citizens (see Kellogg’s and Amazon).
But still, deflecting like “lol Apple is fucked” instead of realizing all this shit affects you and is right on your doorstep, but keep on upvoting and downvoting with your head in the sand.
Proud to say that at 46 I have never given Apple a single fucking penny.
>no flush toilets
They’re literally called [Indian toilets ](https://discover.hubpages.com/travel/Indian-toilets)and it’s the standard across the country (western toilets are getting more commonplace these days but still a vast majority of houses are built with ‘no flush toilets’) . You don’t ‘flush’ it with a button but rather dump a bucketful of water. Next you’re going to get shocked that these toilets don’t have toilet papers. This is like getting shocked that people get paid less than a dollar an hour. That’s still average to above average pay for the cost of living there. Not saying it shouldn’t go up, but that’s the norm in any factory job in India.
This is outrageous! We should boycott them! *posted from IPhone*
