In particular, The Information highlights a case of child labor at Suyin Electronics, a Chinese firm that used to provide MacBook parts. Inspections by Apple reportedly discovered underage workers in 2013. At a follow up audit just three months later, Apple found additional workers as young as 14 years old. Apple continued to rely on Suyin for more than three years before cutting ties with the company.
Ten former members of Apple's supplier responsibility team told The Information that Suyin wasn't an isolated incident, and that Apple had refused or was slow to stop doing business with suppliers that had repeatedly violated labor laws or failed to improve workplace safety when it would have cut into its profits.Via: Business Insider
