Kudos to the Washington Post for its condemnation of Foxconn’s heavy-handed treatment toward humans. And an extra high five for pointing out that while arguing with Foxconn is futile, the effective response could be to boycott products designed by Foxconn’s customers.
But it’s sad to say that the WaPo’s editorial — a blog, really — came only after Foxconn workers were accused of attacking a journalist. Foxconn employs hundreds of thousands of workers. Should not their fates matter, too?
