iPad 3 Released from Sweatshop

The glazed over look of love.
The watchdog group SumOfUs has called on Apple to release the time cards of the Chinese workers who made the iPad3.  It turns out that workers were awakened from their sleep to put in last minute overnight changes to the iPad2 before its release (yes the workers sleep in their factories).  Last year Apple's profit margin was more than 30 percent while the notorious Foxconn was 1.5 percent, which doesn't allow for it to implement Apple's and the Fair Labor Association's code of conduct.  SumOfUs has already collected 130,000 signatures for its petition.  But I am not holding my breath for Apple to ever release those time cards.
