    Apple has the money in the bank 60-80 B$ that it could approach China (due to the supply chain) with an offer to build it's own city factory with a living wages and decent working conditions and then market that as THE reason to buy the already expensive but very high quality products it sells. Once the competitors see this business model work, it could allow them all to pressure China to fix they workers rights situation. Once they have fair employment conditions and wages America would competitive again.

    Frankly, I believe that a levelling of workers rights is the only route back for American competitiveness in manufacturing. We the consumers have to make that business model work through our purchasing choices.

    You could be listening to Netroots Radio. "We are but temporary visitors on this planet. The microbes own this place" <- Me
