Too much work

Mac Format - - APPLEWORLD -

On be­half of Ap­ple the Fair La­bor As­so­ci­a­tion (FLA) re­cently au­dited work­ing prac­tices at Ap­ple sup­plier, Quanta. The company em­ploys over 35,000 work­ers on Ap­ple pro­duc­tion lines. FLA found many work­ers at one fac­tory work over 60 hours each week. The sup­plier av­er­aged an 86% com­pli­ance with its 60-hour work-week pol­icy, which is lower than the 95% com­pli­ance reached by all the com­pa­nies rated within Ap­ple's 2014 Sup­plier Re­spon­si­bil­ity re­port. Ap­ple said it is now work­ing with Quanta and other sup­pli­ers to end ex­ces­sive over­time.
