Internal audit reveals 106 children employed at 11 factories making Apple products in past year

Magne Aune's insight:

It is shocking to read about the enormous number of children in labour. This text feels is written in Apple's favor and I believe that this is a text about Apple washing its hands. I do believe that Apple was aware of the child labour, but exposed it themselves before others could.

This article describes the situation of companies utilizing children in their production. It also tells about how no company wishes to be associated with underage labour as a subject. This article gave a larger view of the situation how the companies and producers think towards the situation, which made a bigger impact on me.

This article tells us about child labour in Apple fabrics. Shocking results..

7 Things To Know About Fair Trade

7 Things To Know About Fair Trade | Global problems | Scoop.it

October is International Fair Trade Month. It is designed to educate consumers on the reasons behind buying Fair Trade products. So, why Fair Trade and what makes it different? Which would you purchase? A white shirt made in Indonesia selling for $14.99 with a "designer label" or a white shirt made in Indonesia for $25 which has a Fair Trade designation? Why do you think there is such a discrepancy?
