Submission + - Foxconn Denies Vocational Students Forced to Work

jones_supa writes: Foxconn has responded to the criticism regarding Chinese internship students being forced to work for them. In a statement to Washington Post, Foxconn said that its “short-term internship program” is in line with Chinese labor laws and that interns comprise 2.7% of its labor force in China. Schools, not Foxconn, recruit students into the programs, the company said, and the programs are supervised by local government authorities and teachers assigned to monitor the students’ work. Foxconn has also set up a hotline for interns and outlined procedures that allow them to resign from the program.
