Re: Apple Put the burden of our regulations on the companies that use offshore sourcing by requiring the offshore companies to abide by our labor regulations (minus minimum wage requirements) or US companies are not allowed to use them or import their goods here. PERIOD
Then we dont have to worry about child labor, safety standards, overtime pay and everything else.
For those of you that are going to argue their law and culture against ours let me point out to you that there are many things they are required to do by our laws or they dont do business here. Lead paint is one example. In addition, many multinational corporations lay out requirements for ALL of their divisions in all of the world. The same thing can easily apply to our labor laws.
