The image of apple suffers a blow after protesters descend on Apple stores all around the world on worse labor conditions and negligence in service. Apple had made headlines in 2010 and 2011, related with explosions in factories and workers committing suicides. ‘The New York Times’ had recently laid out reports against Apple revealing workers working in the most deplorable conditions. The reports also showed recordings of workers who were suffering from injuries from repetitive motion and exposure to chemicals.
Although Apple’s spokesperson Steve Dowling had opposed the protests and the reports completely stating that they care about every worker in their world wide supply chain. He also added that not only the workers are treated with respect and dignity, but they also work and make use of environmentally responsible manufacturing process, where ever Apple products are made.
One of the protesters said that the purpose of the protest is just to assure that Apple hears the complaints and concerns of its customers, instead of neglecting it, the way they have been doing it for a long time now. Kiran Kidwai – International Desk, NMTV.
