ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

I cannot write my post today before I acknowledge the recent reports about the manufacturing of Apple products in China.  Even more to the point,  I do not think that any one of the many Apple customers in the United States was not troubled by the report of how these products, we’ve come to love and use, are being made for our use and entertainment.

Human cost does matter.  In this country where we live to enjoy all sorts of labor laws to protect the human cost value from capitalism, we cannot close our minds and eyes to this recent, startling revelation.  We should further evaluate and listen, but we cannot ignore what is alleged.

In 1904 the National Child Labor Committee began its mission of advocating for child labor laws in the United States.  That was one hundred eight years ago. That’s only one issue.

Surely, as citizens, parents and ultimately as consumers of the products, which Apple and other companies either manufacture, or contract with others to manufacture, we will be vigilantly watching for what plans and solutions to this multi-headed hydra are proposed and implemented.  The news is disturbing; the answer is probably not simple.

There is clearly more to come on this subject.

My newest interests are Aromatherapy and Essential Oils. I write about all of these interests as topics on my various blogs. I am hopeful that the posts I create bring information that is useful and moves my readers to explore more.

  1. Your acknowledgement is spot on. It’s our duty as human beings to look after one another in our immediate circles and globally. We must continue to watch.
