Not to sound like a union symphatizer but this is a tragic consequence of world ecomony. America is moving jobs overseas where lack of environmental regulation and worker safety is prevalent. Loss of human life is the price of that consequence.

Thanks for this article, but the value of life is more important than losing some money for one quarter. Trust me; Apple will make up for this lost in the future. The company is during very well.

How and why? No evidence of that. They are still a fruit that can be chewed!

Apple should protect the rights of the worker in OEM factories. Also make sure the environment in manufature is good for the workers' health and safety.

Apple have had ample warning of health & safety failings within their supply chain. How many deaths will it take to drive this message home, not only to Apple to to all the consumer & indutry giants?

Apple should ensure worker safety at contract manufacturers for their own benefit. With the razor thin margins Foxconn make, they may not be motivated much to spend on safety. Apple, even before the explosion couldn't meet the demand of iPad2. At the place where I live, its sold out in most of the shops.
