Apple CEO Tim Cook does not want Apple employees to be working in unsafe working conditions.
Responding to The New York Times‘ investigative report on dangerous working conditions in Apple factories that have led to death and injury, the Apple chief sent out an email to employees last week.
9to5mac.com reposted the email. Cook wrote: “As a company and as individuals, we are defined by our values. Unfortunately some people are questioning Apple’s values today, and I’d like to address this with you directly. We care about every worker in our worldwide supply chain. Any accident is deeply troubling, and any issue with working conditions is cause for concern. Any suggestion that we don’t care is patently false and offensive to us. As you know better than anyone, accusations like these are contrary to our values. It’s not who we are.”
