Did Nintendo Know About What Was Going On in Foxconn?
Video by Rich; Intro by Menashe
This editorial is a video by Rich, but first let me comment. As Rich mentions in the video, there is no way anyone was going to be boycotting Foxconn because there are probably so many places we’re using some form of electronics manufactured by Foxconn that we wouldn’t even know it. So, did Nintendo know about the underage workers at Foxconn and did they say, ‘It’s not our business to scrutinize too hard.’? Probably. But, it’s not just Nintendo. It’s anyone who associates themselves with Foxconn. Which is everyone, including Microsoft, Sony, Amazon, and Apple (Foxconn helps in the development of PS3, Xbox 360, iPad, and Kindle.) It’s unfortunate, but this is the reality in the business world. Businesses often turn a blind eye to others’ activities that they might have morally felt obligated to speak out upon but would rather not make a fuss. Of course, Rich isn’t too pleased with this kind of attitude and I’ll let you listen to what he has t say about it.
