Co   words they worked for   factory Foxconn in   three months. According to them, such training was a condition for graduation, although   studies have nothing to do   had. Adolescents were admitted to   work unofficially, respectively, the salary was given " in   envelope. " Behind   One day of work the students could collect up to   1.2 thousand cameras for the iPhone X.

AT   answer to   this is Foxconn and   Apple said that they checked all cases of processing among students and   promised to take measures to   settlement of this issue. But   not   specified exactly what measures. Both companies disowned   coercion to   slave labor, and   if, and   if anyone   worked above the norm   - received compensation and   other payments. Also in   Foxconn said that they actually organize internships for students, but   them   It is forbidden to work more than 40 hours in   a week.
