Apple Supplier Pays Poisoned Workers - but does Apple Change It's Oversight??

Apple Supplier Pays Poisoned Workers

"The Taiwan-based company, which owns factories in each China's Suzhou industrial park, said it has set aside a combined 10 million yuan, or about $1.5 million, to compensate workers who were affected by hexyl hydride, also known as n-hexane, a fast-drying agent used to clean displays.
The factory workers became ill in 2009 after being exposed to the substance, which caused pain and numbness, prompting employees to write to Apple's chief executive Steve Jobs for help in paying their medical bills."
