People are organizing to protest in front of Apple stores timed to coincide with the iPad 3 launch tomorrow, to remind people that Apple is using exploited Chinese workers to build their products. I have been writing about the situation of exploited Apple workers in China and how this affects our own jobs and wages here, here, here, and here. Also see Richard Eskow’s post Hell Is Cheaper: China, Apple, And The Economics Of Horror.
This Facebook page informs people of a protest at Apple San Francisco, One Stockton Street, San Francisco.
I received an email about a protest in Washington, DC at Apple Georgetown, 1229 Wisconsin Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20007. The email was titled, “Protest at Apple Store Demanding iPad 3 Be Made Ethically.”
This is a Change.org petition, with almost 300,000 signatures: Apple: Protect Workers Making iPhones in Chinese Factories
