“Working conditions are terrible, and workers are subject to terrible treatment,” read the report. “Currently, Apple’s profits are declining, and the effects of this decline have been passed on to suppliers. To mitigate the impact, Pegatron has taken some covert measures to exploit workers.”

Some horrific accounts there. Forced to do 82 hours overtime? When do they get time to do anything else? Poor souls.

What do the Human Rights say about this? This is abusive in every way you see it. Life is less valuable than a phone it seems.

I thought Apple were moving to do something about these factories. They are the driving force behind the industry after all.
