It also pledged to fire any employees who were found to be responsible for the violations.Louis Woo, spokesman for Foxconn, said the company immediately began an investigation into the matter last week after learning of the underage employees from an NGO, which he declined to name. The allegations were eventually substantiated, prompting the company on Monday to send home all of the students under the age of 16 who had been working at the factory.Foxconn, based in Taiwan, employs nearly 70,000 workers at its factory in Yantai.”We are really sorry and we apologize to the students for causing this inconvenience,” Woo said, adding that all of the companys factories have been ordered to look into whether they employ workers or interns younger than 16.He said the interns at Foxconn cannot be forced to work, can quit any time they want and are not allowed to work night shifts or overtime.”Interns are paid the same salaries as ordinary workers at Foxconn, so there is no reason we would take these risks (of hiring underage interns),” he said.Foxconn has a short-term internship program with various vocational schools and other educational institutions on the mainland. The internship programs last from three to six months.A student at Yantai Engineering and Technology College, who asked to remain anonymous, told China National Radio that he had once worked night shifts at the Yantai plants circulation department. He said the schedule was difficult.The factory eventually “fired” him after he took leave three times without first receiving permission, and a teacher at the college told him he would also be expelled from the school for failing to finish the internship, China National Radio reported.More than 50 students at the college under the age of 16 were employed in the factory in September. The report said some of them worked seven days a week.The college disagreed with those claims on Wednesday.”Nearly 95 percent, or even 98 percent, of the students who participated in the internship program we had with Foxconn were older than 16,” a publicity officer at the college who only identified herself as Zhong said on Wednesday.Zhong said no student has been expelled because they failed to complete an internship, adding that the college has not made money from the programs.However, Duan Yi, a lawyer at Guangdong Laowei Law Firm, said underage labor is too common in China.”Weve dealt with cases in which schools made profit by establishing partnerships with factories and sending students to work there.”(中国日报网英语点津 Helen 编辑)About the broadcaster:Nelly Min is an editor at China Daily with more than 10 years of experience as a newspaper editor and photographer.
