Yesterday we reported about an online petition urging Apple to improve the working conditions of workers in China. This week has ended and at the time of this news report being written, the online petition has garnered 162,000 signatures.
Few weeks ago, Apple and its partner Foxconn had been accused of forcing workers in their factories located in China to work in inhuman conditions.
Recently, New York Times (NYT) had conducted an expose, accusing Foxconn of making workers in its factories in China working in inhuman conditions. The blame was pinned on Apple’s supply chain in China and government subsidized factories. This news did not gain much attention, probably due to China’s “Iron Curtain” but the report from NYT drew the attention of many people to this news.
