I decided to reply back to comment posted to my Apple post
Three Reasons Why NOT to Buy Apple Products 13/03/2010
i do understand that child labor is a huge problem and it’s not a good thing. but so does Apple, the people there aren’t stupid. they do admit using it and no sane person would admit it if they still want to sell something if it weren’t somewhat human. admitting means that they do pay the children well for their job and you have to realize that even though we’d want everything to be well in the world and kids to have an education it just isn’t possible in some places. in those places the children have to work so that they and their families would have something to eat. and to those kids working for Apple is probably a gift from heaven or at least close.
because i don’t want to fight that is all i’m going to comment on this post (believe me, i could put up a pretty good fight) just sometimes, like in this thing, just think outside the box.

So let’s begin. Yes, Apple developers are stupid. Why do they give/make children work? Why they don’t give their parents job or older persons? If they give job to parents they would have money for get their children to school. Do you want to be at school when you are like 3-15 years old? Children’s job is to play and learn. To the places where is no education we must create possibility. It is every kids’ right. We can always change the world. Why should we give up? Never give up. Because people here in rich countries don’t care. But I care. Apple should support the community to create good environment for children and their parents and help them to come good workers.
And the most important thing and the key of success is EDUCATION. When you are well-educated you can go to work and have money for food and for your family. You can not deny the benefit of education. Education is every child’s right NOW and FOREVER.
To the writer of that comment I would like to say that Apple is not human at all. The real human would support these countries to have good education and life. The benefit of education is huge and it will always show in companies. When you have professionals at work the works will be well done and customers will be happy to support legal and good company!
And yes, I do think outside the box, I think about the benefit of an individual and a company coming together. CHILDREN CAN HAVE EDUCATION EVERYWHERE. IT IS POSSIBLE. WE CAN MAKE IT.
