apple-pegatronPegatron Technology did issue a statement to the Taiwan Stock Exchange that the company has every intention to look into claims that made its way into a BBC report last week, citing how its employees are being mistreated. Apart from that, Pegatron has also mentioned that their top priority happens to be employee safety, and it is currently working to make sure that every single one of its workers are safe.

Apart from that, Pegatron also mentioned that it has put in place strict training for all of its employees and management, while employing external inspectors to audit its facilities. BBC One did reveal multiple instances of poor treatment of workers on one particular production line, which is not necessarily a representation of the other production lines, where hidden cameras allegedly show off various infractions that are in opposition to Apple’s very own Supplier Responsibility report, such as illegal ID card confiscation, working hours that are longer than normal, destitute living conditions, and underage workers.

While Apple, who happens to work with Pegatron in manufacturing of some of its hardware, has seen executive Jeff Williams step forward to mention that select details offered by the company to the BBC were “clearly missing”, citing, “We know of no other company doing as much as Apple does to ensure fair and safe working conditions, to discover and investigate problems, to fix and follow through when issues arise, and to provide transparency into the operations of our suppliers.”

There is an old proverb in the Golden Chersonese area that goes like this, “Whoever eats the chilli, he or she will taste the spiciness.”
