Foxconn admits to enslaving young children to build iPhones
The following news report only confirms all that I had stated in my mini documentary, ‘Apple: Rotten to the Core’ -Grant J. Kidney
CNN — Foxconn Technology Group — the world’s largest electronics manufacturer and supplier to companies like Apple, Samsung and Microsoft — admitted that interns as young as 14 worked at one of its Chinese plants.
“An internal investigation carried out by our company has confirmed media reports in China that some participants in the short-term student internship program that is administered at our campus in Yantai, Shandong Province are under the legal working age of 16 years,” the company said in a statement. “This is not only a violation of China’s labor law, it is also a violation of Foxconn policy and immediate steps have been taken to return the interns in question to their educational institutions.”
The underage interns had worked at the plant for about three weeks, the company said. No evidence was found at other plants in China, the company added.
