Sweatshop Conditions Charged in iPod Manufacture

“Apple Computer Inc. is having an iPod-related public relations headache this week, following a report by a British newspaper on working conditions at Chinese factories where the popular music player is built.

“The Mail on Sunday reported that a Chinese factory that manufactures iPods employs 200,000 workers who live in dormitories where visitors are not permitted. Workers toil for 15-hour days for as little as $50 per month, according to the article.

“Apple said it is ‘investigating the allegations regarding working conditions in the iPod manufacturing plant in China.'”
