 Chinese Workers Manufacturing Apple Products Subject to Inhuman Working Conditions

A recent report by The Guardian has revealed that Chinese workers manufacturing Apple products, are working in an unhealthy atmosphere that comprises unduly long working hours and oppressive rules at the workplace.

Further, they had to sign an 'anti-suicide pledge' to avert a recurrence of deaths that took place at the Foxconn plant last year.

The Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations and Students & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehaviour conducted an investigation and found that 500,000 workers at the Shenzhen and Chengdu factories, which manufacture iPhone and iPads, are  subject to inhuman working conditions.

The report has said that overtime is much more than the legal limit of 36 hours a month. Further, workers who did not perform well were publicly insulted.
