According to The Telegraph, Apple has admitted that at least eleven 15-year-old children were found last year working in several factories that supply goods to the computer giant.
Although the location of the factories were not revealed, the majority of their goods are assembled in China, with other factories based in Taiwan, Singapore, the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, the Czech Republic and the United States.
“In each of the three facilities, we required a review of all employment records for the year as well as a complete analysis of the hiring process to clarify how underage people had been able to gain employment,” said Apple.
In the same annual report of its suppliers, Apple also admitted that at least 55 of the 102 factories that produce its goods were ignoring Apple’s rule that staff cannot work more than 60 hours a week.
