5. Point Taken

The report by Student & Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM) does directly call out Apple as not following their own code of conduct which states it requires its suppliers to uphold its workers' basic human rights as understood by the international community.

Conclusion

The rampant labor rights violations at Foxlink, Pegatron and Wintek are rooted in the rushpurchasing practices and failure of effective monitoring by Apple. The excessive overtime, theuse of dispatch labor and harsh management practices are the results, directly and indirectly,of the short delivery time demanded by Apple before it launches new products. Furthermore,all the three factories have longstanding business relationships with Apple. The problemsreveal that Apple does not care about the systematic violations at its suppliers
