Foxconn CEO defends labor practices in wake of protest

Michael Kan | June 26, 2015
Apple supplier Foxconn Technology Group has been on the receiving end of continued criticism over its factories' labor conditions for years. But on Thursday, the company's CEO let loose his outrage over the complaints.

"These workers don't have a reasonable wage. They don't have a reasonable working time," said Liang Pui Kwan, a project officer with Hong Kong-based Students and Scholars Against Corporate Misbehavior (SACOM). The group has been one of the most vocal critics of Foxconn's labor practices.

In May, SACOM issued a report alleging that conditions at Foxconn factories are still "far from satisfactory." While the company has raised wages for workers, it has also cut employee compensation in other areas, according to the group.
