Apple’s innovative products receive deserved praise around the globe.  But Apple should only be considered a global leader if it also meets its stated commitment “that working conditions in Apple’s supply chain are safe, that workers are treated with respect and dignity.”  To date, Apple has failed to meet that commitment to hundreds of thousands of workers each year.

The Economic Policy Institute is partnering with Isaac Shapiro, labor policy expert and EPI research associate, on AppleLabor.com.  In 2012, EPI conducted analyses on the labor practices of Apple’s suppliers and continues to work closely with experts at the Worker Rights ConsortiumChina Labor Watch, and the Hong Kong-based labor rights group SACOM.
