Any worker recruited by our firm is covered by a clear contract outlining terms and conditions and by Chinese government law that protects their rights,? the company wrote. Foxconn ?takes our responsibility to our employees very seriously and we work hard to give our more than one million employees a safe and positive environment.? The company disputed some details of the former Apple executive?s account, and wrote that a midnight shift, such as the one described, was impossible ?because we have strict regulations regarding the working hours of our employees based on their designated shifts, and every employee has computerized timecards that would bar them from working at any facility at a time outside of their approved shift.? The company said that all shifts began at either 7 a.m. or 7 p.m., and that employees receive at least 12 hours? notice of any schedule changes.

They could hire 3,000 people overnight,? said Jennifer Rigoni, who was Apple?s worldwide supply demand manager until 2010, but declined to discuss specifics of her work. ?What U.S. plant can find 3,000 people overnight and convince them to live in dorms??

nothing like Foxconn City exists in the United States. The facility has 230,000 employees, many working six days a week, often spending up to 12 hours a day at the plant. Over a quarter of Foxconn?s work force lives in company barracks and many workers earn less than $17 a day. When one Apple executive arrived during a shift change, his car was stuck in a river of employees streaming past. ?The scale is unimaginable,? he said.

When an Apple team visited, the Chinese plant?s owners were already constructing a new wing. ?This is in case you give us the contract,? the manager said, according to a former Apple executive. The Chinese government had agreed to underwrite costs for numerous industries, and those subsidies had trickled down to the glass-cutting factory. It had a warehouse filled with glass samples available to Apple, free of charge. The owners made engineers available at almost no cost. They had built on-site dormitories so employees would be available 24 hours a day. The Chinese plant got the job. ?The entire supply chain is in China now,? said another former high-ranking Apple executive. ?You need a thousand rubber gaskets? That?s the factory next door. You need a million screws? That factory is a block away. You need that screw made a little bit different? It will take three hours.?
