Fact is:

1. Apple has been vehemently attacked in the past by (often false) claims that Apple suppliers used underage workers.

2. Apple has repeatedly stated in public that they are strongly against employment of underage workers.

3. Apple has for many years worked with suppliers to avoid employment of underage workers, and has in the past forced suppliers to fix the damage done, and cancelled contracts with suppliers.

4. Employing underage workers is illegal in China.

5. For Apple not to act on such information would be illegal, against Apple's core values, against any Christian values, hypocritical, and asking for very unfavourable media attention. Each of these five points on its own should be enough to act as Apple did.

That's a very, very hypothetical situation. And the answer is "yes", because of Apple's core values, and Apple could sign a cheque immediately that is big enough to have a backup within five minutes.

And that is nonsense. A 15 year old with forged papers, employed illegally, will cost the employer just as much money as a 16 year old that is employed legally.

Christian values? In china? This a communist country we are taking about and the US is really no better.
iMACAll life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
