I mostly agree, but the argument is more complicated than this.

Interesting, and certainly complicated. I’m curious to learn more, though.

It really irked me that so many articles left out this kind of information. Foxconn employee daily salary sounds terrible to us, but the average cost of living is necessary to understand the full picture. I don’t think “buying Apple” is a solution of any sort, but the rest of the information definitely fleshes out the picture.
