Bad karma for US computer users? NY Times story on bad conditions for workers at computer parts manufacturers in China

Well, do western computer (especially Apple) users have bad karma?  The New York Times on Thursday has a lead story “In China, the Human Costs that Are Built into an iPad”, link here.  
    
The article discusses worker safety in the many parts factories around Chengdu, China, including living conditions and dormitory life. We depend on workers to do this for us.  The audit procedures from Apple are described in detail. How much did Steve Jobs involve himself with worker safety overseas?

Yet Donald Trump keeps saying, "The Chinese are not our friends".
