“ABC News’ Bill Weir exclusively reported earlier this week on the conditions inside Apple’s main Chinese manufacturer — Foxconn,” Almin Karamehmedovic reports for ABC News.
“For the first time ever, Apple allowed a journalist onto its production line and to witness the labor conditions inside Foxconn, which have sometimes been reported to be unfair and unsafe,” Karamehmedovic reports. “Tuesday night’s special edition of Nightline expanded upon that original report, and included footage from inside the factory, interviews with the workers and even a visit to a local village.”
Karamehmedovic reports, “Since ABC News’ original report, Apple, Foxconn and the Fair Labor Association have sent statements explaining a few sentences in the original report.”
The text of those statements are in the full article here.
