Apple's iPhone 5C Manufacturer was Accused of Labor Violations in China

The new Apple iPhone 5C is being manufactured for the market at a brisk rate. However, issues having to do with the legal and ethical implications of the production process have emerged recently. A factory in Wuxi, China where the dirty work of Florida-based Jabil Circuit takes place has come under special scrutiny. 

The poor workers who slog away at the factory are not even paid their rightful minimal wages. The work schedule is many times over the legal limit of backbreaking donkeywork. Besides the half hour repast break, the workers have to stand for hours on end. Then the way the company takes the menial staff on board is discriminatory. They are given such rudimentary training that they are hardly capable of doing their jobs properly. 

Apple seems to be the major culprit in this capitalist game of sweat shop culture. It has time after time faced similar accusations and needs to clean up its act. While the code of ethics it espouses is very strict and is of an international standard, the reality hardly matches the empty pompous words

Previously, Pegatron and Foxconn came under fire for their labor rights abuses. But this time around it is Jabil Circuit. Meanwhile, the execs at Apple are furious and want a full fledged inquiry into the matter. They have promised that they will look into the atrocities and right any wrongs on the part of Jabil Circuit.
