Now thats funny!!!! Next Apple is going to sue Samsung for NOT using child labor!! They will claim that Samsungs inability to hire underage workers is forcing Apple to have to hire them. Good for Samsung!!! That a moral high ground I can applaud. Dont destroy a childs life by forcing them into work situations that they really are not emotionally nor physically ready to tackle.

I can supply them parts from a company that I know has child labor and their stance would still be true. "Their" suppliers are just the middle man.

Their direct suppliers is all they can check cause those are the ones they employ. It is up to the suppliers to see if their suppliers are breaking any laws. The end company can't police every single link in the chain, it's expensive and I think something they can't actually pursue directly (they would need to tell their suppliers to check their suppliers).
