A report into working conditions at Chinese factories operated by an Apple supplier has revealed "serious" labour violations, including excessive hours, unpaid wages and major health and safety risks.
The Fair Labor Association (FLA) said employees at Foxconn, which produces products including iPhones and iPads, typically worked more than 60 hours a week during peak periods but were paid unfair compensation for overtime.
Around two-thirds of workers told investigators that their take-home pay was insufficient to meet basic needs.
In addition, 43% said they had witnessed an accident at work, leading to fears of poor safety provisions at the plants.
