How Apple treats its workers

It's great that this issue has gotten so much press of late (and that some sectors of the tech press have really gotten into it in a positive way). I have no concept of how particularly bad these Apple factories are, and whether they're actually worse than your average factory in China, or if they're mostly just about that bad.

Anyhow, David Barboza has a piece in today's NYT actually going to this one factory and talking to the workers and digging into the issue of this toxic chemical used in iPhones. Props to him for doing this work.
