Beijing – The manufacturer of Apple’s iPhones gave a response this week regarding allegations of forced student labor in its Chinese factories. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the company, Foxconn, stated that it has an agreement with the schools of vocational students who are part of its internship program that allows them to leave the program if they choose to.
Hong Kong group, China Labor Watch, has cited complaints against the company by some students who claim their schools compelled them to continue working in the facilities even if they no longer wanted to.
Foxconn, which has faced wage and hour complaints from workers in the past, reportedly stated Wednesday that interns were free to leave the program, are at least of the minimum working age legal in the country, are paid entry-level wages, and are monitored by accompanying teachers throughout the duration of their time in the program.
Foxconn is owned by Taiwan’s Hon Hai Precision Industry Co.
