Gizmodo’s @brbarrett: What are the other tech companies doing regarding labor in China?

Brian Barrett (@brbarrett) of Gizmodo follows up all the hoopla and outrage Apple caught for the whole China made thing, which I have touched on a while back on February, 15th, with what all the other tech giants are doing in this area.

He’s quoting an article by John Herrman at Buzzfeed’s FWD who did the original legwork.

Choice cuts:

HP: Unfortunately I can’t provide a spokesperson for you at this time.

MS: As we presently have a robust auditing program in place, a deeper engagement with the organization (Fair Labor Association) has not been considered by Microsoft.

HTC: …we approach these issues with the goal of continually pushing ourselves, our suppliers and the industry towards ongoing improvement.

Toshiba: Unfortunately, we are unable to respond to your request.

Samsung, Asus, Sony: …

Right.
