redletterdave writes: A Chinese workersâ(TM) rights group on Monday accused Taiwan-based Pegatron, a key contractor for Apple Inc., of violating several major safety and environmental standards set in place by Chinese law and Appleâ(TM)s own supplier policy. The full report was released on Monday morning by China Labor Watch, a New York-based non-profit. The CLW sent investigators to Pegatron's three factories and conducted almost 200 interviews with workers between March and July. The report compared 17 social promises made by Apple with 17 realities of the poor working and living conditions at Pegatron uncovered during the investigation. Apple issued a response shortly after the CLW released its report, saying "Their latest report contains claims that are new to us and we will investigate them immediately."
