A new report from China labour Watch, a labour rights group, details working conditions inside of Apple supplier Pegatron.

One particularly interesting reveal says that workers making Apple iPads are required to finish making 600 back covers during a single shift.

Specifically, the report says:

Pegatron supervisors harassed and abused workers by swearing at them and threatening collective
punishment. If workers at AVY did not finish 600
iPad back covers during a single shift, they would
be made to stay late without wages and accept
scolding in front of others.

Besides ridicule, employees only make $1.50 per hour and have to work 11-hour shifts.
