Students in China Forced to Make iPhones
Posted on October 5, 2012
The iPhone 5 is the latest craze in the technology world, but in China, there seems to be a different issue behind this whole iPhone 5 trend.
Apparently, a large number of students are being forced to make the new iPhone 5. In Huai’an, in eastern China, 200 students from the Huaiyin Institution of Technology were hired by Foxconn Technology of Taiwan, the main Apple supplier, to work on the new gadget.
The students receive $244 a month for working six days a week, twelve hours a day. With Foxconn having an insufficient number of workers to keep up with the iPhone hype, they also recruited students from the Jiangsu Institute of Finance and Economy to work for them.
The students were apparently ordered by their schools to report to Foxconn without their parents knowing about it. We have yet to find out the legal measurements imposed by the authorities on Foxconn after finding out about their illegal doings.
