Apple supplier workers have been exposed to toxic chemicals, report finds

The Verge --------- An Apple supplier in China has once again been flagged for having poor factory working conditions by a report today from non-profit China Labor Watch, which Bloomberg added original reporting to. The report details working conditions at a Catcher Technology factory, which manufactures products for Apple in Suqian, Jiangsu province, six hours north of Shanghai. Workers at Catcher make iPhone frames and components for MacBooks. On a typical day, workers may stand for up to 10 hours to cut and blast iPhone casings, according to the report. The workers are said to handle harmful chemicals daily without goggles or proper gloves to protect their hands or faces. Workers do wear paper face masks, but the oil they use to cut iPhone casings may still splash into their eyes and cause them to grow blood-shot over time, the report says. Workers are also described as wearing cotton gloves that get soaked in cutting fluid, which makes direct contact with their hands and leads to skin irritation.
