Loophole in ‘employee’ definition allows ‘forced interns’ at Foxconn

0. phoneArena 02 Apr 2012, 11:05 posted on

While Tim Cook and Foxconn look to make improvements to become legally compliant with labor laws after the Fair Labor Association (FLA) could “serious and pressing noncompliance” in Foxconn factories, a group of activists are drawing attention to another labor violation that they say has slipped under the radar...

The trolls will have a field day with this. Remix andro, commence with the blood on your hands comments.

Please continently ignore that Foxconn makes products for many major companies including products you two use.

you got that right buddy.

think you dont have blood on your hands because your mommy buys your electronics for you?

I know you would like to have people THINK you were gone while you were banned and havent used 10 other names which all got banned, but I know that you know the issue of foxconn and other companies has been brought up 1000 times. Its been well versed. Your wrong, like usual.

So how do u feel now that you are trolling under your own name for once?

BTW, what kind of heartless moron doesnt think that kids going to college and being told by the college that if they dont go work in slave conditions for 3 -6 months or they will be permanently booted from college is an OK thing to do? We arent talking about a few students, we are talking 20k a MONTH.

And in china, when your fired or kicked out, you are permanently blacklisted by all companies in the area.

I don't think it's ok. I think your a hypocrite because you bash Apple and continue to use products made in Foxconn factories.

My problem is i realize apple has terrible working conditions but so does everyone else. Why are we drawing the line at where what apple is doing is wrong and what everyone else does is fine. The line should have been drawn way above the standards of all phone makers. I don't approve of apple's actions in any way but I am applaud but everyone else as well.

"Please continently ignore that Foxconn makes products for many major companies including products you two use."

You meant conveniently right?

That is true. What is also true is that Apple has chosen to make themselves the face of and the saviors of Foxconn and this whole mess. They brough in the auditors. They are making public visits. They are the ones who where saying that "nothing was wrong" and now you want people to not say something after all of that?

They are also Foxconn's largest client and are on record stating that they care about all employees in the supply chain and also that they do audits themselves.

This will do nothing to harm Apple either. They could kill children in public and drink their blood and people would still buy their products.

So rumors of your death are greatly exaggerated?

Funny how you start right back in with your nonsense. Anyone who has ever worked in or had parents who work in manufacturing knows that conditions can vary widely from plant to plant, even in the same company. How come none of the violations being reported are shown to have to do with the plants that make products for companies other than Apple?

Just to let you know, I don't hate the products. I just don't like their business practice about hyping up their products and calling it revolutionary. Kind of like "Siri". My old phones used to have voice recognition and read outs for years. I might enjoy their product if I was 5' and had I had tiny little petite hands, but I could very easily use any device with one hand and a 4"-5" screen.

Not to diss Apple, but I'm just stating a fact. Sure there are flaws with every phone, but I'm tired of all the iFans making Pros out of the Cons and making silly excuses. The iPhone is a great phone, but it Isn't God sent and only comes close to some of Androids mid-end phones. Sometimes I feel that websites only review iPhones so high because they are scared that the iFans might backlash. I have found that while Android phones are getting negative reviews for a tiny 4" screen and poor battery life "that matches the iPhones battery life" are never mentioned as cons for the iPhone. Features that are missing that are very common on most phones nowadays. Most of the hype is created by Apple and create a mental thought that they "think" they have the best as their commercials and advertising make them believe. It's all an illusion.

but why you care so much couldn't simply not buy their products and that's it.. let other find out for themselves or respect their decision on cell phone... besides I don't see why you trip on specs.. Android is not Apple and vice versa.. things are differently in Apple.. respect... just because 4 inch screens came out doesn't mean everyone should jump on it.. people still need need 3'5 screen and may even not buy the iphone if it goes bigger screen... do you do this to al products you don't agree on how they market their product?...

I'm kind of amazed such stupid comments not only get posted here, but up voted.

News flash: Apple isn't personally responsible for Foxconn, but they're the only ones trying to improve it. Now you think they're responsible for Chinese labor laws too? Amazing.
