Nightline Airs "Inside the iFactory" [Share your comments]

Apple opened it's Foxconn factory doors to ABC's Nightline, and the episode aired last night. Anchor Bill Weir walked through the massive Chinese facilities and was allowed to talk to anyone and everyone. Workers make an average of $1.78 an hour, working 12-hour shifts and 6-day work weeks. Foxconn came under scrutiny last year when several employees committed suicide within the span of a few months. It has since come to light that the suicide rate at Foxconn is actually much lower than the Chinese average. 

What are your thoughts? Does seeing this make you feel guilty about buying Apple products? What would you like Apple to do (if anything)?
