The BBC reports that despite Apple’s alleged
zero tolerance policy for any instance, isolated or not, of any treatment of workers that could be interpreted as harsh, Apple has been found to support workers:
more than six consecutive days 25% of the time,
more than 60 hours a week a third of the time,
- and suffering
two instances of staff being made to stand to attention as a form of disciplinary punishment
I’d say at least two instances because Apple’s report was not independently verified.
I’ve covered why supporting Apple is a problem for the progressive Left. Apparently I was wrong when I said
If Apple’s workers are treated unethically, we can rally against their products […]
Will progressive Leftists care how Apple’s workers are treated?
Apple says the workload was
excessive and will return to a
normal 60-hour work week.
