Don’t spend your money where? Apple, IBM, HP, Dell…

The New York Times ran a second front-page piece yesterday on how U.S. companies get away with murder and make enormous profits by manufacturing in China.

This story digs deeper and more specifically into the horrible conditions of Chinese workers in plants that manufacture your iPhones and iPads, or whatever those things are called (I don’t have any, obviously).

You can’t read this piece and not shudder when you look at the devices you own that are covered in human blood.

When President Obama asked Steve Jobs how we, the U.S., could get those iPhone manufacturing jobs back, Jobs said they weren’t coming back. Blunt.

Now, thanks to the New York Times and fine investigative reporting by Charles Duhigg and David Barboza, we know why.
