Q1: Apple is frequently criticised for working conditions at Foxconn. Critics focus on low pay (relative to US), long hours and suicides. On the other hand, locals wait hours in line to apply for the jobs that pay well by their standards. - When a company determines wages, it’s always possible to simply bargain for the lowest price possible, but if the guiding idea is, instead, providing a socially responsible wage to the Chinese workers, how should the actual amount be determined? In terms of local buying power? International norms? The ability of consumers to pay? Something else?
Q2: Ethically, does it matter whether the employees who assemble the iPhone and iPad can actually afford to buy one?
