Fair Labor Association begins inspections of Foxconn
So, finally something is done with Foxconn. Suicides have been reported at Foxconn, so someone finally did something. We believe that workers everywhere have the right to a safe and fair work environment, which is why we’ve asked the FLA to independently assess the performance of our largest suppliers,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. They should have a “happy” environment to work in, where there are not people that are depressed and feel like the factory is a jail. Apple’s policy on work conditions can be found here. Also, the FLA will be posting their findings in early March at www.fairlabor.org.
