-All three factories exceeded the legal limits of work hours and overtime -14% of workers did not receive fair compensation for overtime hours worked -64% of workers’ compensation did not cover their financial needs -43% of workers have witnessed or been part of an accident -Slipshod accident reporting -Health and safety issues including blocked exits, improper protective equipment and lack of permits -Inadequate union representation -Low enrollment in social security benefit programs -Poor treatment of interns
I'm really hoping that this is the change that's often promised. In many threads I have commented about how Foxconn has shoddy business practices and at some threads I have even commented how things might change; now we're getting some official sign that something is being done. Again, I really hope this is it, it'll finally show to these companies that these types of business tactics are unacceptable; I don't want to have to buy any kind of product and worry if the person working on it is being tortured, I want to use my technology without having some form of moral weight on my hands.
