I would say that the people making allegations about slave labor, etc., having committed the greatest sins against the truth.

>>>It would appear that at least a few people have been regularly making factually inaccurate statements in defense of Apple's manufacturing record.


By default, all their statements are inaccurate that are not backed by official links.

You mean like yesterday, when I said hexane wasn't being used anymore at Wintek? And you demanded a link, which I didn't feel like supplying, but then I pointed out that the very story you yourself had linked to contained that information?

Oh, no. that's not a good example, because even without supplying a link, I was stating facts, which you contradicted.

Do you know what an official link is?? I don't think you do.

An "official" link?

No, do tell.

A statement by Wintek themselves. They were the ones using it.

Why is it just that one part of the story that would have to be corroborated by Wintek directly? What about the rest of it? Is the rest of it "official"?

That's the question I asked you and you have yet to provide an official link.

For the rest you can read yourself.

But Debby Chan, project officer at Students and Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior, a labor rights group in Hong Kong, said Apple and Wintek were slow to address the problem. “We heard rumors about the poisoning in 2009, and after a strike at the factory in January 2010, we went to the No. 5 hospital and found some of the workers,” Ms. Chan said. “When I visited workers in the hospital they said the Wintek management did not care about the situation. And after this case was exposed by the media, Apple never approached the workers or made an apology for their suffering.”

One of the injured Wintek workers who agreed to be interviewed Sunday, Yao Xiaoping, 22, a migrant worker from Shaanxi Province, said he had left the factory and had accepted compensation of about $12,000 but now feared for his future because of the n-hexane poisoning that he said had left him with sweaty palms and weak limbs.

“I went back to my village but everyone knows what happened to me,” he said, fighting back tears. “So it has made it difficult for me to find a wife there.”

I said I'd read news stories saying hexane wasn't used at Wintek anymore. You demanded to see a link to one of those stories. I finally relented and provided you with a link to your own link, which is one of those stories.

That's what happened, so now we should both be caught up to the moment.
