Apple Releases Report on iPod Sweatshop Factory Conditions

If you recall, in June Apple was under fire about allegations that their manufacturing facilities in China are working under sweatshop-like conditions. They launched a full-blown investigation into the matter and released their report yesterday. The findings: the Apple manufacturing facilities are a good place to work.

The audit found no underage workers, many requests for overtime and also found that all employees received at least local minimum wage, while at least half received over that. The most interesting finding is that the facilities offer dormitories for employees to live in, rent-free, along with recreation facilities, cafeterias, lounges, Internet cafes, a post office, a hospital, a supermarket and even a freaking swimming pool. Sounds like a pretty good place to work, in China at least.

So, uh, Gawker. You guys going to pay for my rent and hook me up with a sweet swimming pool?
