17. Steve Jobs on Foxconn: 'We're all over this'

Said Steve: "We are on top of this. We look at everything at these companies. I can tell you a few things that we know. And we are all over this. Foxconn is not a sweatshop. It's a factory -- but my gosh, they have restaurants and movie theaters... but it's a factory. But they've had some suicides and attempted suicides -- and they have 400,000 people there. The rate is under what the US rate is, but it's still troubling." Steve also said that Apple's "got people" over at Foxconn currently trying to figure out what's going on -- we figured as much but it's always good to hear it straight from them.

Looks like Apple isn't all over it after all, or they actually approve of child labor.

Meanwhile I find the purity test very off putting, it happens in every thread that mentions Foxconn. OK, I have sinned, my motherboard is on there, and likely came from a similar factory. Care to actually discuss this now? I don't have a smart phone, though I do have a cheap likely made in Taiwan cell phone, not sure of its origins, it was free. I don't use phones much.
