I refused to buy any Apple products when this came to light. That was a misinformed decision (although I don’t regret leaving Apple, because the alternatives have been a better experience). Here’s why:

"The toll (a dozen this year) is lower than the suicide rate among the general population in China." http://www.economist.com/node/16231588

The suicide rate at Foxconn is also far lower than the suicide rate in the US: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/steve-jobs/7796546/Foxconn-suicide-rate-is-lower-than-in-the-US-says-Apples-Steve-Jobs.html

and they want to work more hours than they do, often volunteering for overtime: http://www.businessinsider.com/apples-foxconn-workers-want-to-work-more-2012-3

China doesn’t have a great per capita income, so yes, conditions there look pretty bad from our ivory towers in the rich west. But sweatshops like these give workers opportunities to improve their lives that they can’t find elsewhere, and that’s why they flock to them in droves. Things are improving quickly in China as a result. Even leftist economists like Paul Krugman agree on this: http://www.slate.com/articles/business/the_dismal_science/1997/03/in_praise_of_cheap_labor.html
