Many companies, like Apple, used to value having products that were “made in America,” but not anymore. More and more American companies are outsourcing their labor to Asian countries where there are very few regulations concerning labor hours and conditions. When put under serious stress, companies will move their labor to China in order to have the job done in the required time frame and at the standard of excellence they expect. Apple has become notorious in the news for their use of Foxconn as a labor alternative since they always seem to get the job done before the rapidly approaching deadline. The poor conditions Foxconn employees experienced have even led to numerous suicides to which they only raised their wages and offered counseling. Foxconn employees work absurd hours, have poor living conditions, and barely have any free time. They are even threatened not to accept interviews or else they risk losing their jobs along with facing criminal charges. Americans are enraged that under the current economic strife, American companies were still providing hundreds of thousands of jobs to foreign employees. The money that Apple spends paying the Foxconn employees could be given to hardworking Americans who are struggling to find jobs in a country with stringent labor regulations. This money could be recirculating in the American economy instead of being outsourced to other countries. Americans feel that companies who outsource their labor are taking money out of the American economy and using it to support companies that violate human rights all over the world.
