Apple Supplier Foxconn's Violations: How It  Plans To Solve Them Corporate public relations rule  numero uno:  When a scandal occurs, admit you were wrong and say you're sorry. Apple  is doing just that with the help of the Fair Labor Association (FLA), which released its audit of Apple's factories in  China on Thursday. Apple and the FLA pledged to amend the issues at the factories by closely monitoring them and  implementing solutions to improve overall conditions, the audit noted.  The FLA found  numerous violations  at three Foxconn factories in China — Apple's number one supplier — including  overworked employees and unsafe working conditions.  But will Apple and the FLA make good on its promises to turn these conditions around? Activist group  SumOfUs  said  Apple has made promises in the past that it didn't keep. A memo on the  SomeOfUs website  shows two Apple statements regarding factory conditions side-by-side. One is from 2006, the other is from earlier this year. In both statements Apple  said it will work to ensure factory employees are not overworked. The most recent audit by the FLA shows employees

    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.
