Why Can't Apple make your iPhone in America?
Monday night’s riot at the Foxconn plant in Chengdu, China should have iPhone and iPad users wondering-- isn’t there a better way?
Scott Paul, executive director of the Alliance for American Manufacturing (AAM) will moderate a panel, Why Can't Apple make your iPhone in America, at the Netroots Nation Conference on Saturday morning aiming to answer this question.
As AAM has concluded, iPhones and iPads could indeed be manufactured in the United States, but they aren’t.
Joined by Congressman David Cicilline (D-RI), Campaign for America’s Future’s Dave Johnson, and Emptywheel’s Marcy Wheeler, Paul’s panel will explore the reasons why iPhones and iPads are being made overseas, discuss ways this could change, and contemplate whether progressives have an obligation to act toward reshoring U.S. jobs.
We hope you’ll attend the panel, Saturday, June 9th at 10:30am in room 551.
