Apple supplier Foxconn denies using forced student labor in Chinese factories

Michael Kan | Sept. 12, 2012
Apple supplier Foxconn has denied forcing vocational school students in China to work at its factories, following claims that the students must remain employed at the company or lose school credit.

One high school worker, aged 18, said he came to the factory to work as part of an internship arranged by his teacher. However, he said he came to work because there was little for him to do during the summer break. He declined to give out his name for fear of being punished.

Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
