Analyzing Labor Conditions of Pegatron and Foxconn: Apple’s Low-Cost Reality   Wednesday, February 11, 2015 NEW YORK - China Labor Watch (CLW) published a new report that investigates labor costs and conditions at two major Apple  supplier manufacturers, Pegatron (Shanghai) and Foxconn (Longhua).  Ever since Foxconn's labor costs increased in 2010, Apple has been more greatly engaging lower cost suppliers like Pegatron, which  gain their competitive edge through lower labor cost, leading to poorer labor conditions. Although Apple claims they have strict internal auditing of supplier labor conditions, our investigation and analysis found that labor  conditions at major suppliers are still substandard. Workers still do overtime far in excess of even Apple's own standard. Under this  competition structure, suppliers that improve labor conditions are at a disadvantage. Apple is the major beneficiary of this supply

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
