Typical American, thinks the whole world revolves around the laws of America. China doesn't have states.
This is a universal human rights declaration, meaning it applies to the whole world. China is a signatory to this declaration, and helped to draft it.
Also, if you would bother to read what I posted, then you would understand that you are wrong.
They were also forced to work overtime even though the company had a policy that student interns are not allowed to work overtime. Students had no obligation to work overtime, because of the company's policy, but they were forced to, else they forfeit their degree.
Being forced to work overtime is not a violation if it is in the contract, but being forced to work overtime as a student intern is, because Foxconn had a policy saying that students should not be forced or allowed to work overtime or have night shifts. So students were not obligated to work overtime or have nights shifts. The problem here is they were forced to work overtime, if they did not work overtime, they would lose credits.
They were not at all under favourable and just conditions, as stated in the Universal Human Rights Declaration.
Quote from one student:
"Since Foxconn are not treating us well, we will not treat the PS4 console well. The PS4 console we assemble can be turned on at best."
You have no idea how hard it was to work in the factories as a recent high school graduate.
Terrible workplace conditions there.
Also, you know what's funny?
China actually was a co-author to the Declaration of Universal Human Rights, and voted in favor for it. So if the rights had to apply to any country, it most definitely must apply to them.
Typical un educated poster
For starters do you realize how bad China's Human Rights are? (the Middle East/Africa is still worse but China is not far off). Do you even know how China's Human Rights work?, I'm guessing you don't have any idea on ether of those, do you realize people get put in jail for simply saying or doing something against the governments wishes, so do you expect China to follow a "Universal Human Rights"?. The UN has tried to go in and talk to China about their lack of Human Rights while China has pretty much ignored the matter.
These are college students who are adults, if they were children then that would be a whole **** storm of wrong and guess what, China has a very "black" area when it comes to Children's Rights as well.
