Foxconn is back in the news again. Apparently they "accidentally" had Chinese student interns building Playstation 4 systems without pay in order to graduate. Foxconn insists they were unaware and it was the school's fault. This isn't the first time controversy has come up with Foxconn, who assembles a bevy of other popular devices such as the iPhone, as well as other game systems such as PS3, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
A year or so ago, they had several employees commit suicide at their plants.
Sony's response was as follows:
In a statement issued by Sony, the PlayStation 4 owner said “the Sony Group established the 'Sony Supplier Code of Conduct' in June 2005 with the expectation of every supplier agreeing and adhering to the policies of the Sony Group in complying with all applicable laws, work ethics, labour conditions, and respect for human rights, environmental conservation and health and safety.”
"We understand Foxconn fully comprehend and comply with this Sony Supplier Code of Conduct."
This was posted earlier, but despite the invitation by rag, who locked it, for it be reposted sans personal and confrontational language was not reposted by the original OP, so here it is. I really hope we can stop hearing about this horrible stuff going on over there.
