Why is this a job of US companies? If people around the world are truly concerned with working conditions in China they would be buying made in non-China products. I don't see that happenning

"suppliers must limit the number of student workers they use and student work must also complement the students' primary area of study, HP said." Imagine if U.S. employers or their customers enforced such a policy here. It is preferable, of course, for students to get private employer internships or on-campus jobs that are related to their field of study. Many students don't get those, however, and simply need to work to make money and pay bills -- whether the job is fast food, waiting tables or whatever. I'd like to ask my fellow engineers here, what kind of non-engineering-related jobs did you have when you were a student? I'll go first: cashier at a gas station/convenience store during freshman & sophomore years. Later I got a job with the EE department as a teaching assistant, but I'm grateful that there was no policy to protect me from being "exploited" by working at a job unrelated to my field of study, or limiting the number of students that employer was allowed to hire!

Would this result in higher costs of labor? Cost sensitivity still more prevalent than sensitivity to what is right.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
