Apple Petitioned On Working Conditions

2/09/2012 02:26:30 PM Eastern

New York - Small crowds protested today at several Apple
Stores today to voice their disapproval of worker conditions at Foxconn and
other parts suppliers, according to several published reports.

CNNMoney
reported that about a dozen people showed up at Apple's Grand Central Terminal
store Thursday morning to hand over a petition calling for worker reforms at
Apple's suppliers. The petition was started on the social advocacy site Change.org. The site claimed about 200,000
people have signed the petition.

Petitions were also reportedly delivered to Apple locations
in London, Bangalore and San Francisco.

The petitions are in response to a New
York Times
article that depicted harsh working conditions at Foxconn.
Foxconn makes Apple's iPad and iPhone and also does contract work for
Hewlett-Packard, Dell and other computer and electronics firms.

Apple did not respond to today's incidents, but on Jan. 19
Apple posted its Supplier
Responsibility Code of Conduct
on its website.
