The left doesn't worship, the right does. The right wants more government control in the form of a police state aka fascism. The right constantly wants more money to build more prisons and warehouse people for the rest of their lives at taxpayer expense and when they aren't harping about that they whine for more money to spend on weapons and military to control other countries.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
Regardless of rules, regulations or practices...the relationship between worker and employer is a two-way street.
Again....let's say Apple is guilty of all those "bad" hiring practices and working environments. Is anyone forced to work there? Do they have the ability to force a current worker to stay there, if they want to go? As an employee, you have the freedom to go if you don't like it there. As the employer, you create the best working conditions you can, if you expect to attract workers. I'm specifically talking about "1st world" situations. Not whatever obscure little 5th world puissant business might fall under an extremist point of view.

"...On Jan. 24, Apple announced “revenue of more than $46 billion” for the quarter ending December 31. Just try to imagine 37 million iPhones: that’s how many Apple sold in just the last three months of 2011 thanks for Apple’s manufacturer in China called ‘Foxconn,’” explained a Jan. 29 report on CBC News “Sunday Morning.” This report also pointed to “The dark side of shiny Apple products” in a lead story headline that detailed massive child “slave labor” and “regular suicides” by those Foxconn employees – including young children -- “who make each and every iPhone by hand,” for what amounts to, state experts, “as slave wages.” At the same time, high tech and cutting edge micro-electronics manufacturing used to be a huge part of the Made in America brand here in Portland’s version of Silicon Valley, but now China’s “Foxconn” is producing the most advanced technology for Apple’s iPhone, iPad and other American high-tech companies are following suit by sending most of their business to Foxconn...."

I worked in Seoul South Korea and there the people work 16 hour days, 6 days a week and they sleep on mats on the floor under their desks during the 8 hours they arent working. It made me appreciate my own country and our labor laws a lot more.
