lets differentiate between apple workers & workers of other companies who manufacture products on behalf of apple. if i subcontract work am i responsible for the working conditions of my subcontractor.

Erm, YES if you know about it .. otherwise it's purely a "pass the buck" exercise.

Sticking with that supplier is to perpetuate the situation, and surely makes Apple at the very least "complicit", so why should they be absolved of responsibility ?

If it were criminal law we were talking here, they'd be a knowing accomplice and as guilty as the primary perpetrator .. would they not ?

Try telling a court you bear no responsibility for the brand new 50" plasma TV you got for £2 from your "supplier" .. and see if they'll absolve you of any responsibility for his "business practices" ;)

Whether it's ethically right or wrong for western companies to use cheap foreign resources/labour is another question .. but YES, if/when there's a known "issue" and you choose to take part, you also bear responsibility.
