China Labor Watch, a non-profit watchdog group, has found a number of issues inside Apples factories. An investigation conducted along with Green America, determined employees at these overseas suppliers were faced with unsafe working conditions and crazy schedules. In a statement, Todd Larsen, the corporate responsibility director for Green America, said, The investigation of Catcher Technology raises serious concerns around working conditions in Apple’s second-tier supplier factories. We knew that we needed to make this information public to encourage Apple to take immediate next steps in addressing toxins and unsafe working conditions in their factories as Apple continues to ramp up production of the iPhone 6.”
