Apple Addresses Labor Violations At Chinese Factories

I'm not sure why anyone even reports on this stuff anymore. Apple is repeatedly in news for this stuff but, other than people squawking about it, nothing ever gets done. frown

The report found that both factories fell short of local requirements for indoor air quality testing, and that 80 percent of workers interviewed in Shanghai claimed to have been charged a hiring fee by a broker or agent. Moreover, workers were not paid due wages for sick leave, and during the busiest periods of the year, facilities regularly exceeded legal limits on working hours.
