Apple Launches Investigation Into Conditions in Chinese Factories

Have been accused of having poor working and living conditions


Apple is taking action after being singled out once again for terrible working conditions in its suppliers' factories in China. Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) said it is sending audit teams to three Chinese factories that are being accused of having extremely poor working and living conditions.

China Labor Watch, a non-profit organization, issued a report Monday saying that one off Apple's major suppliers—Pegatron—violated a wide range of labor rules and industry standards as it worked to pump out iPhones and Mac computers.
