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

Due to the massive population in India, and it's brutaly unfair caste system,  it's no suprise child labour is an issue. We as consunmers have to choose not to by products made by children.

This video hits my heart. It is so horrible to see whar child labour does to children in India.
