Jobs told Obama that American regulations make it more difficult for Apple to build its products cheaply in the United States compared to the cost of building them in China. Chinese health and safety standards are more lax than the United States.
The Apple founder's legendary attention to detail emerged as they planned the dinner, hosted by a small group of tech executives at a hotel near the San Francisco airport. Jobs did not want to serve a chocolate truffle cream pie for dessert, arguing that the meal was too fancy. The White House event planners overruled him and the cream pies, a favorite of Mr. Obama's, were served, according to the book.

“It’s weird protesting on Bay Street. You get there at 9 a.m. and the rich bankers who you want to hurl insults at and change their worldview have been at work for two hours already.

The severe economic conditions of farm workers is reflected in the following facts:
· The reported average hourly wage of farm workers nationally is about $6.17, which is 7 per cent less than in 1977, after inflation (New York Times) (However, many farm worker advocates contend that this figure is very misleading and is actually much lower. Farm workers work as many as 12 to 14 hours per day, but a workday of 8 hours is used to calculate the hourly wage.)
· In the peak season farm workers work as much as 12 to 14 hours per day, six or seven days per week but no overtime is paid.
· The average annual income of farm workers is between $7,000.00 and $8,000.00. This is lowest of all wage and salary workers in the US.
· The number of farm workers living in poverty is increasing. In 1994-95, sixty one per cent of farm workers lived in poverty compared to fifty per cent in 1990.
Farm workers employed on small farms (i.e., those that used less than 500 "man-days" of farm labor in any calendar quarter of the preceding calendar year)
nearly three-quarters of U.S. farmworkers earn less than $10,000 a year, and three out of five farmworker families have incomes below the poverty line.
