In Apple factories in China, there are teenagers that work overtime hours that in that country are illegal. Also, there are such unsanitary, and dangerous conditions in the factories. As said in a Chicago Tribune article, “Up to eight workers share a cramped dorm room of about four bunk beds. When Bloomberg visited in January, outside temperatures were often near freezing and workers kept all windows shut to preserve heat. That created a humid atmosphere in which odors of sweat, cigarettes, feet and unwashed clothing mixed freely. Workers living in about 20 rooms per floor share one wash space with 14 cold-water taps, a big public toilet — but no shower. Taking a proper bath required walking to an adjacent facility.” Also, hazardous materials were handled improperly, and workers were often forced to work and were unpaid which is illegal. Another article, called Chinese Foxconn Factory Worker Commits Suicide, stated the perspective of a worker. It said, "'The assembly line ran very fast and after just one morning we all had blisters and the skin on our hand was black,' one of the factory workers told the Telegraph on the condition of anonymity. 'The factory was also really choked with dust and no one could bear it.'"Some workers even became so miserable that they took their own lives. The article also said, "After being embroiled in accusations of running their factories like a "sweatshop," Foxconn erected nets around its Shenzhen factory buildings, designed to prevent suicide jumps in 2011. Although the rate of worker suicides went down, four workers still ended up taking their lives since then.” The factories have made changes to stop workers from taking their own lives instead of changing what made them want to. So sign this petition and take action on this horrible case at hand. Every signature counts!
