Apple Requests Investigation Into Scandal Ridden Foxconn
At the request of 250,000 petition signatures, Apple has asked the Fair Labor Association to investigate the working conditions at the Foxconn factory in China. The factory has been rumored to work employees long hours without breaks, deny workers simple benefits, and even going so far as to build nets around the grounds to prevent workers from jumping to their deaths. The nets were constructed after numerous employees committed suicide. In a particularly striking instance of revolt, hundreds of factory workers took to the rooftops and threatened to jump in protest of Foxconn withholding compensation packages promised to workers who recently quit.
“We believe that workers everywhere have the right to a safe and fair work environment, which is why we’ve asked the FLA to independently assess the performance of our largest suppliers,” Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, explained in a media advisory. “The inspections now underway are unprecedented in the electronics industry, both in scale and scope, and we appreciate the FLA agreeing to take the unusual step of identifying the factories in their reports.”
