Apple Denies Sweatshop Reports


Posted August 18, 2006 - By Stephen Johnson

After conducting an investigation, Apple Computers has denied a report from a British newspaper accusing the company of producing their popular iPod music and video players in Chinese sweatshops.

"The team reviewed personnel files and hiring practices and found no evidence whatsoever of the use of child labor or any form of forced labor," Apple said in a report on its Web site

"We found no instances of forced overtime," the report went on. But it said weekly overtime limits were exceeded 35 percent of the time in a seven-month period and that employees worked more than six days in a row 25 percent of the time.

Enjoy your iPod with a clear consciense, consumer.
