Latest Fair Labor Association Stories
Normally, the days leading up to an iPhone event are filled with conjecture, rumors and wild speculation. And while there has been no shortage of these stories this year, another story has, yet again, brought to the public’s attention the labor practices of the factories where these iPhones are assembled.
Foxconn, the assembly plant for Apple and many other electronics companies, is making headlines once again as the Fair Labor Association has issued a report about the plant's performance.
A monthlong investigation by the Fair Labor Association (FLA) into factories operated by Foxconn in China found poor working conditions and worker abuse, leading Foxconn to pledge it will make improvements.
Apple's chief executive Tim Cook visited Foxconn Technology's manufacturing plant for the iPhone earlier this week, amidst controversy over working conditions at the facility.
According to the Fair Labor Association (FLA), the controversial Foxconn factory in China has better working conditions than other facilities in the country.
Apple Inc. announced on Monday that a non-profit labor group has begun an "unprecedented" audit of working conditions at some of its suppliers in China, including Foxconn, which has come under fire for poor working conditions and a rash of suicides in recent years.
CEO Tim Cook sent an email to employees, stating that Apple "cares about every worker in its supply chain" and that it is "attacking problems".
