“Our investigation has shown that the interns in question, who
ranged in age from 14 to 16, had worked in that campus for
approximately three weeks,” the company said. “This is not only a
violation of China’s labour law, it is also a violation of Foxconn
policy, and immediate steps have been taken to return the interns
in question to their educational institutions.”
Foxconn pledged to conduct a full investigation and fire any
employee found to have been responsible for the violations. The
company also said the Yantai facility “has no association with any
work we carry out on behalf of Apple”.
Foxconn needs to get its act together.
