Though the bubbly invites have actually been sent out for Apple’s Sept. 10 Cupertino occasion where we may lastly see the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, recent reports once again, reveal a darker side of Apple.

China Labor Watch released a statement today about the conditions of Jabil Environment-friendly Point, a UNITED STATE possessed manufacturing facility in Wuxi, China purportedly producing the inexpensive iPhone.

Apple has already been in hot water earlier this summertime when the Watch reported labor infractions at Pegatron centers.

Poor working and living conditions, and using underage workers at Pegatron, were similar to previous investigations of Apple’s various other major supplier, Foxconn.

Does Apple have a rotten core?

Just like the various other 2 factory labor abuse reports, the Wuxi place seems to bear the same issues.

Workers are forced to take on 11-hour changes, mostly standing and with just 30 minute breaks to consume, 110 hours of overtime is mandatory where particular amounts are unsettled, dormitories have 8 patient per room with workers sleeping in changes – and the list just continues.

CLW backs up its claims with pictures received an English report on the website. Integrated with the information provided by the undercover workers, it doesn’t repaint an appealing picture of Apple.

With an increasing number of information of inadequate conditions surfacing, it appears like Apple will easily have to step up its game to keep track of production factories, and hopefully soon.
