Apple Releases List of Its Suppliers for the First Time

Apple said audits revealed that 93 supplier facilities had records indicating that over half of workers exceeded a 60-hour weekly working limit. Apple said 108 facilities did not pay proper overtime as required by law. In 15 facilities, Apple found foreign contract workers who had paid excessive recruitment fees to labor agencies.

The company is following the lead of many other big corporations, which have released similar lists in the past.
