Well today the CEO of Apple, Tim Cook at Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference told about the employee’s standard at Apple. Well that’s what he said
The first thing that I would want everyone to know is that Apple takes working conditions very, very seriously. And we have for a very long time. Whether workers are in Europe, or in Asia, or the United States, we care about every worker. I’ve spent a lot of time in factories personally… Many of our top managers and executives visit our factories on a regular basis. And we have hundreds of employees that are based there full time. So we are very closely connected to the production process…
…In terms of problems we are working to fix, you can read the details on our website, but I would tell you that no one in our industry is doing more to improving working conditions than Apple. We are constantly auditing facilities, going deep into the supply chain, looking for problems, finding problems, and fixing problems. And we report everything, because we believe that transparency is so very important in this area.
It seems many of the people around are pointing at Apple about the labor chain because a month back a report by a reporter was published in which she visited the Foxconn in China where she saw child labor, taking work like animal kinda stuff and more. She interviewed the employees there and the response was magnificently bad. Well Apple on there website have made ‘Supplier Responsibility’ category live in which they have filed about there employees and other related things.
From the ‘Supplier Responsibility‘
Apple is committed to the highest standards of social responsibility across our worldwide supply chain. We insist that all of our suppliers provide safe working conditions, treat workers with dignity and respect, and use environmentally responsible manufacturing processes. Our actions — from thorough site audits to industry-leading training programs — demonstrate this commitment.
