The conditions of workers at Foxconn have been the subject of discussion for the past few years, but lately more and more people seem to be interested in how the workers at the tech manufacturing giant fare. A petition asks for your signature to pressure Apple into "mak(ing) the iPhone 5 ethically."
But can an online petition really make a difference in this situation? Apple is not the only company who uses Foxconn to supply their hardware manufacturing. Amazon, Microsoft and Sony also use Foxconn to manufacture the Kindle, Xbox 360 and the PS3, among others. John Paul Titlow goes into further detail in, "Why Petitions Won't Change Apple's Labor Practices Anytime Soon."
Can an online petition change conditions for workers at Foxconn?
