Beyond Foxconn:Deplorable Working Conditions Characterize Apple’s Entire Supply Chain (Kenseisha)

Labor concerns at factory (700 workers) producing aluminum cases for laptop computers: age discrimination upon hiring (16 – 35 years old); use of chlid labor (as low as 16); 12 hour daily shifts; during the off-season workers can get one day off per week; during peak production they only get one day off every two months; monthly overtime 85-150 hours; verbally abusive managers; use of equipment is not closely monitored; work-related injuries occur occasionally; base salary insufficient for workers to support themselves.
