Apple, Foxconn Convince Indian State To Loosen Labor Laws

  • Apple and its manufacturing partner Foxconn were among the companies behind a landmark liberalization of labor laws in the Indian state of Karnataka last month.
  • Their successful lobbying for new legislation means two-shift production can take place in India, akin to the two companies’ practices in China, their primary manufacturing base.
  • The law gives the southern state one of the most flexible working regimes in India as the country aims to become an alternative manufacturing base to China.
