Apple and Foxconn have been accused of violating labor laws at a factory where the tech giants are producing the new iPhone, according to a new report from China Labor Watch. Additionally, the nonprofit watchdog alleges that workers at the Foxconn plant in Zhengzhou, the largest iPhone factory in the world, are working extreme overtime hours in violation of local laws.

Under Chinas labor laws, temporary workers can only comprise up to 10 percent of any given companys workforce. But according to China Labor Watch, roughly 50 percent of workers at the Zhengzhou Foxconn factory where iPhones are being produced are temporary. Workers earn roughly $1.68 US per hour standard and $2.52 US per hour for overtime, a wage, insufficient to sustain the livelihood for a family living in Zhengzhou city, says China Labor Watch.
