According to recent headlines human rights groups are targeting Apple for potential labor violations in connection with the iPhone 5c. These reports from the China Labor Watch, U.S. electronics manufacturer Jabil Circuit who are building the 5C are being accused of a number of violations including: the company owing workers millions in unpaid overtime wages, for forcing workers to stand for 11 hours a day with only a 30 minute lunch break and failing to provide adequate training. These are just a few of the complaints being made against the company. While Apple themselves have implemented a handful of changes in an effort to discourage and prevent such poor labor practices, the complaints just keep coming in over the quality of working conditions for Chinese laborers.
