Apple, of course, makes any number of innovative products. But being an innovator in technology shouldn’t require being a reactionary on human rights — or being a shameless tax cheat. As an industry leader with ballooning profit margins, Apple can afford to get its coltan from Australia. It can shoulder the costs of a living wage and basic labor standards for its workers. And it can surely pay its taxes. But for now, Apple has perpetuated the relentless violence in the Congo, abused hard-working and disenfranchised laborers in China, and, for good measure, sought to stiff the American taxpayers who have made it so wealthy. Sorry, Apple. That’s three strikes. Three Strikes against Apple
