Apple have the financial and political clout to change things for the better for asian workers overnight....but the shareholders would go ape and the CEO would be fired. Their agenda has only one single item...to make as much money as possible at whatever cost. You would have to be naive to think otherwise.
And what evidence do you have for your opinion?
There are some companies in the world that refuse to make money their top priority, and as a result end up being highly successful and making tons of money. That usually happens when a company makes customer satisfaction and employee satisfaction their top priority. Many people don't get it. Most CEO's don't get it. But Steve Jobs did get it, and Tim Cook would have to be a complete moron if he hadn't figured it out yet. There are other companies as well. Motto: "If you look after your customers, and you look after your employees, then the stock will look after the shareholders all by itself".
Summary: You don't have a clue what you are talking about.
