The company Foxconn known as the contractor to Apple again accused of using illegal child labor factory in China.
Foxconn had carried out the order via the smart speakers with voice assistants for Amazon. In order to be able to perform work in time, the contractor hired for the work of the pupils of schools and technical colleges from the city of Hengyang. As it turned out, many of these children had to work overtime and at night. More than a thousand minors have been employed in the factory.
According to Chinese law, companies can hire people at the age of 16 years. But to adulthood they should not work overtime to the night shift.
The research also found that Foxconn paid teachers of schools for those that stimulated students to work beyond the norm.
The company has already pleaded guilty. It should be noted that this is not the first associated with such a scandal.
