Apple to look into iPod China sweatshop complaint

Posted on Thursday, June 15 2006 @ 09:01:23 CEST by

The Mail on Sunday UK newspaper reported last week that a number of the factories in China were iPods are manufactured are sweatshops, employees work 15-hour daily and earn as little as $200 a month.

The paper also claims some of the workers live in 100-person dormitories where non-employees aren't allowed.
In response, Apple issued a statement, which included the following: “Apple is committed to ensuring that working conditions in our supply chain are safe, workers are treated with respect and dignity, and manufacturing processes are environmentally responsible,” according to BBC News.

It also said it’s "currently investigating the allegations regarding working conditions in the iPod manufacturing plant in China," BBC News reports.
