Foxconn says it ended interns’ illegal overtime at iPhone X factory

Following previous reports of student interns working illegal overtime hours on the iPhone X production line, Foxconn says it has immediately put an end to the practice.

Last week the Financial Times broke the news that six students had routinely been spending more than 40 hours a week assembling the iPhone X.

That is illegal under Chinese law.

Apple quickly performed an audit, and discovered that it was true, though they participated voluntarily and were compensated.

Following the news, Foxconn has confirmed that it was against their own policies and has immediately put an end to it.

We know our work is never done and we’ll continue to do all we can to make a positive impact and protect workers in our supply chain.
