Although this is a step in the right direction, does anyone really believe that a monthly check-up and report is really going to improve the lives of the average (Chinese) manufacturing worker?

There is a management adage “If you want something to improve, start measuring it regularly”, but I don’t see that translating to any meaningful change unless other global electronics suppliers start doing the same, and with oversight by independent auditors.

The point is not belief or non-belief, that would be better left to religion. The point is simply to evaluate efforts and results. Too many prophets, not enough reality.
